Musical about showbizzmoord cancelled

Musical about showbizzmoord cancelled

The mistake, the musical about the life of Martien Hunnik, does not go through. Janke Dekker Productions had the performance planned for the coming season, but see here anyway.

The show came not from the ground, left the company Thursday to know.

Hunnik has been mistakenly seen as the perpetrator in the Hilversum showbizzmoord, that book stands as one of the biggest judicial errors in the Netherlands ever. The representation Error would be step by step to show how this miscarriage of justice has occurred.

In 1981, the well-known program with one simple question, Bart van der Laar murdered in Hilversum villa. Van der Laar is the producer of successful artists such as LUV, Babe, Lenny Kuhr and Benny Neyman. His murder caused a shock in the showbizzwereld and will make history as “the Showbizzmoord”.

After a long and expensive research with great interest of the press and the public the police arrested Martien Hunnik, Van der Laar knew from the Amsterdam gay scene. After hours of interrogation, he laid out a confession that he later retracts. The judges decide to convict him despite the lack of hard evidence.

Dancing with the enemy

Hunnik has his punishment eventually fully served. After his release, he had fought for years for his rehabilitation. Justice approved earlier this week, the mistakes made and the state offered apologies and smartegeld to Hunnik.

Janke Dekker Productions (JDP) brings next season, a reprise of the show Dancing with the enemy, starring actor Lykele Muus. Previously, the JDP much-praised performances as Garland & Minnelli, Willem Noise and FIFA Blatter, about the corruption scandal within the football association.
