Les and Roger Cook wrote a musical, “Beautiful & Damned”, based on the lives of Zelda and F.Scott Fitzgerald. The show was launched in June 2003, at the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre in Guildford, starring John Barrowman as Scott, and Helen Anker as Zelda. The show then transferred to the Lyric Theatre in London’s West End, this time with Michael Praed playing F.Scott Fitzgerald and, again, Helen Anker playing Zelda. The musical became very popular and ran for 16 weeks.
