"There are no stars, the focus is on those people who really sustain the musical theatre industry but who don't have their name in lights and who are unknown," Banderas told reporters earlier this week.

Describing the musical as "a classic", Banderas said it told a story about "those involved in performing arts and all the suffering that goes on behind the scenes".

  Facebook users are noticing a bug that lets the app access their iPhone's camera while they're scrolling through their newsfeed People are noticing a bug in the Facebook iPhone app that appears to show the app accessing their camera while they're scrolling through their newsfeed.

His involvement in the Malaga theatre really took off after he survived a heart attack in 2017 that saw him endure three operations.

Theatre is "really my passion", Banderas said at Cannes, explaining he was spending a lot of time with his 600 students in Malaga and saying he ultimately wanted to stage something based on "my own writing".

For him, the Soho Theatre is a venture in which he is both emotionally and financially invested, pledging more than 200,000 euros ($220,000) a year to the project which is sponsored by Spanish lender Caixabank.

And as director, Banderas has brought in Lluis Pasqual, a giant of Spanish and European theatre, who formerly served as artistic director at Spain's National Drama Centre, Barcelona's Lliure Theatre and the Odeon Theatre in Paris.

For Banderas this also has significance, recalling it was Pascual who "changed my life" when he took him on at Madrid's National Theatre in 1981.

And while in Madrid, he met Almodovar who gave him a small role in his 1982 screwball comedy "Labyrinth of Passion", starting a relationship which has lasted until today.
