Having been stuck for years in development hell with blockbuster movie projects struggling to be greenlit, writers Stacey Haber and David Hofberg asked themselves the question, What resources do we have at our disposal and what can we write and produce ourselves? The answer became The Man From Verona.
A black comedy with an affectionate nod to Hitchcock, it made its debut Off-Off-Broadway on 20 July 1995, directed by David, produced by Stacey and starring improv legend Silver Saundors Friedman.
Almost 18 years later, on 4 February 2013, it made its London debut at the Greenwich Theatre in a production by Vertical Line Theatre.
One way or another a movie version will be Coming Soon to a Screen Near You. But first..? Well, the years of development hell, of course..!
