NEW YORK -- A new musical influenced by the classic Alfred Hitchcock film "Rebecca" has booked a place on Broadway this fall.

Producers announced Thursday that the show will begin previews Oct. 30 at The Broadhurst Theatre, with an opening set for Nov. 18. It will star Karen Mason, Howard McGillin and James Barbour, with two more big roles to be announced later.

Based on the novel by Daphne du Maurier, the story is about a wealthy Englishman, his new wife and a manipulative housekeeper – all haunted by the hero's dead first wife, Rebecca.

It had been expected for this season, but the poor economy was blamed for the delay, which also means it lost Sierra Boggess, who will now be in "Prince of Broadway" at the same time.
