‘80s Icon Tami Stronach does JACK AND THE BEANSTALK Musical12:26 AM
The Child-like Empress from "Never-Ending Story" is back.
Thirty years ago, we fell in love with her Child-like Empress when she beckoned Bastian to call her name.
Directed by Wolfgang Peterson, "The Never-Ending Story" was a West-German produced English-language film that, at the time, was the most expensive film produced outside the United States or the Soviet Union.
Never-Ending Story, which won several awards over 1984 and 1985, was a global hit, snaring US$100 million worldwide against a production budget of US$27 million.
The movie, which catapulted Stronach to stardom, has been a huge inspiration in pop culture and is just as popular today as it was when it was first released.
After a couple of decades of making dance and theater in NYC, Tami has now turned her attention to laying the foundation for a content shop that makes 'family friendly' work – not unlike "Never-Ending Story."
In February, Stronach releases a new album, "Beanstalk Jack", a folk rock ‘opera’ based on Jack and the Beanstalk.
''Beanstalk Jack'' is a 50-minute folk rock ‘concept’ album that the whole family can enjoy.
Stronach made one album “Faerie Queen” that nostalgia buffs will remember was a sleeper hit in the ‘80s.
On Feb. 4, you’ll also be able to see a ‘live’ theatre version of Beanstalk Jack in New York.
