Ever After: musical aiming for B'way in 2013/14
Ever After, a new musical based on the 20th Century Fox Film, will open on Broadway in the 2013-2014 season following a pre-Broadway engagement to be announced.
The production will be directed and choreographed by three-time Tony Award winner Kathleen Marshall ('Anything Goes,' 'The Pajama Game' and 'Wonderful Town.')
Ever After features music by Zina Goldrich and book & lyrics by Marcy Heisler, who recently won the 2012 Kleban Prize for Musical Theatre for most promising musical theatre lyricist. The music director is Mary-Mitchell Campbell.
Ever After tells the story of 'Danielle de Barbarac,' the daughter of a Nobleman in 16th Century France, who embarks on a series of adventures, standing up to her scheming stepmother, befriending Leonardo DaVinci and winning the love of the crown prince of France. This new musical adapts the story of Cinderella to show how a strong-willed, independent girl can make her dreams come true without the help of fairy godmothers, talking mice, or magic pumpkins.
Casting, dates and other creative team will be announced at a later date. The musical is being produced by Scott Landis and Philip Morgaman.
The 20th century Fox movie was releaed in 1998, directed by Andy Tennant, it starred Drew Barrymore as 'Danielle' and Patrick Godfrey as 'Leonardo.'Film poster for Ever After
