Glory Days, new musical plans Broadway bow in early May
Variety reports that the new musical Glory Days, music and lyrics by Nick Blamiere, with book by James Gardiner, hopes to open at Broadway's Cicle in the Square before the Broadway season ends in early May.
Glory Days: Four high school friends reunite one year after graduation to discover how dramatically their lives have grown apart. While they attempt to reconnect and understand each otherï¿½s differences, nothing can compare to the glory days of high school when life was simpler and all appeared right with the world. The musical features music styles from pop and folk to contemporary rock.
The musical had its world premiere at the Signature Theatre in Arlington, Virginia, where it ran from 15 Jan - 17 Feb 2008.
The Signature production was directed by Eric Schaeffer, and starred Steven Booth, Andrew C. Call, Adam Halpin and Jesse JP Johnson.
Producers John O'Boyle and Ricky Stevens, producers of 'Mark Twain's,' 'Is He Dead? and August Wilson's 'Radio Golf', are planning the co-production with the Signature Theatre.
