Burnt – The Show That Set Broadway Ablaze


“Rebecca” the musical was supposed to be the next “Phantom of the Opera”, Broadway’s multi-billion dollar hit. Instead, “Rebecca” turned into one of the wildest, most bizarre, true-crime scandals the stage has ever seen.

When a multi-millionaire stranger suddenly dies, a fire is lit that ends up consuming everyone involved in the show. In Burnt, the story of “Rebecca” winds its way through secret stings, many courtrooms, prison and freedom — and when the smoke finally clears, we’re left to wonder: who is really to blame and how in the hell did this happen?

Reported and hosted by Blake Ross. Edited by Alan Seales. Supervising Producers Dori Berinstein and Brittany Bigelow. Special thanks to Philip Boroff.
