First it was a book by Daniel Wallace, then a movie by Tim Burton. Now it becomes a stage musical with a book by John August and a score by Andrew Lippa, that’ll open on Broadway next October, at the Neil Simon Theatre.
This new musical has direction and choreography by Susan Stroman, who I think it’s one of the most talented and inventive people in the business. The cast includes Norbert Leo Butz, Kate Baldwin, Bobby Steggert, Krystal Joy Brown, Zachary Unger and Brad Oscar. For more about Susan, visit my Susan Stroman site.
The Broadway previews begin September 5 and the tickets are already on sale, meanwhile you can have a sneak peek by watching the video below. You can also listen to a song or two by clicking here.
