‘Zorro’ heads overseas

Show to play in countries throughout Europe

Flamenco musical “Zorro” may be about to brandish its sword for the last time in the West End, but the show will have a life on European stages, with productions set for multiple cities, starting with Paris in the fall.

Amsterdam-based legit group Stage Entertainment has teamed with the tuner’s creators on the project, launching with a French-language staging at the Theatre les Folies Bergere. Other productions are being planned for Germany, the Netherlands, Italy and Russia.

Based on Isabel Allende’s 2005 novel, “Zorro” was directed in London by Christopher Renshaw and choreographed by Rafael Amargo. It interweaves hits and new songs from 1980s-’90s Gitano chart sensations the Gipsy Kings with the story of the masked swordsman in 19th century California.

Following a 10-week U.K. regional tour, the show opened last July at the West End’s Garrick Theater and is scheduled to close March 14. “Zorro” scored five nominations for this year’s Laurence Olivier Awards, to be presented Sunday, including nods for musical, choreography, lead actor and actress and supporting performer.
