Is KPOP eyeing a Broadway premiere?
The Lucille Lortel Award-winning musical KPOP might well be heading to the Great White Way, following reports of open casting calls in New York City on November 16 and 17. Ars Nova's immersive musical, which features a book by Jason Kim, with music and lyrics by Helen Park and Max Vernon, takes the form of a backstage tour through a Korean pop music factory and it was extremely well-received during its Off-Broadway run at A.R.T./New York Theaters. The original cast also featured Mean Girls star Ashley Park and Be More Chill standout Jason Tam. Stay tuned for further details on a future main-stem staging.
