Get ready for a "Vacation" musical comedy?
The Griswolds may well be heading to Broadway on a Vacation that promises to be as hilarious as it is well-choreographed! Producers Ken Davenport and Kurt Deutsch have optioned the musical rights to the hit film franchise "Vacation" by special arrangement with Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures. Under the title of Broadway Vacation, the musical comedy will follow the Griswolds on a musical trip to the Big Apple in a completely original story. Although no timeline has been set for the project, Ken Davenport commented: “Both Kurt and I came of age on the Vacation films series and can’t wait to bring the Griswolds to Broadway. If audiences thought their cinematic misadventures were funny, wait till Clark and his family get to Times Square.”
The popular movie series includes "National Lampoon's Vacation" (1983), "National Lampoon's European Vacation" (1985), "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation" (1989), "Vegas Vacation" (1997), and, most recently, "Vacation" (2015).
