There is a lot of activity around Wuthering Heights going on these days. Some weeks ago we posted a list with different TV/film projects, but there are also several theatrical projects. Quoting from memory:

1. The Cananadian playwright Vern Thiessen prepares a stage adaptation.

2. Fabio Zuffanti is also preparing a new musical setting of the novel in Italian.

3. Hernán Espinosa's opera rock version was scheduled to open this month in Córdoba, Argentina (more information about the current status of the production after the fire that destroyed the theatre, here)

EDIT 4. The Playgroup is working on a contemporary setting of the novel, The Heights.

And now we read in Newsday how a new musical project based on Wuthering Heights is being prepared.
The 2007 Southampton Writers Conference, held at Stony Brook's Southampton campus, 239 Montauk Hwy., is opening its doors to the public for a couple of exclusive events. On Monday, July 23, at 8 p.m., Marsha Norman and Lucy Simon, co-authors of "The Secret Garden," will stage a reading of their new musical, "Heathcliff," based on Emily Brontë's "Wuthering Heights." (Cameron Bird)
Heathcliff was also the name of a previous 1995 musical by John Farrar and Tim Rice for Cliff Richard.
