Mon 26 Apr 2004 Fame now taking bookings to 29 Aug 2004 Fame on 42nd Street has announced a new 2 month booking period and is now taking bookings to 29 Aug 2004 at the Little Shubert Theatre Inspired by the popular film of the same name, Fame on 42nd Street opened Off-Broadway at the Little Shubert Theatre (422 West 42nd Street) on Tuesday 11 Nov 2003, following previews from 7 Oct 2003. The original New York cast recording has been released by Q RECORDS and is now available in stores! Set in a four-year period from 1980-1984 at New York City's legendary High School of Performing Arts on West 46th Street, FAME takes the audience on a roller-coaster ride through the highs, the lows, and the ultimate triumphs of star-struck students in their quest for success. The musical chronicles their four-year odyssey from Freshmen, to Senior Class of 1984 -- the last class to graduate from the landmark building where the unofficial motto was Fame costs and this is where you start paying. Fame on 42nd Street is conceived and developed by David De Silva, with book by Jose Fernandez, lyrics by Jacques Levy, music by Steve Margoshes (title song 'Fame' written by Dean Pitchford and Michael Gore). The New York production is directed by Drew Scott Harris; choreographed by Lars Bethke; and produced by Richard Martini, Allen Spivak and Joop van den Ende/Dodger Stage Holding by arrangement with The Father Fame Foundation. The design team is comprised of Norbert Kolb (Sets), Ken Billington (Lights), Paul Tazewell (Costumes), and Christopher 'Kit' Bond (Sound).
