Broadway-Aimed Musical Diner Holding NYC Workshop

Sheryl Crow

The new musical Diner, which is planning to open on Broadway in early 2013, has begun an extensive four-week workshop in New York City to prepare for its arrival on Broadway.  Originally the tuner was supposed to begin a tryout engagement in San Francisco this month, but, supposedly due to the fact that other large Broadway-bound musicals were likely to take the larger Broadway theaters this season, the Diner creative team to re-envision the show as a more intimate experience suitable for a smaller theater.  This fully-staged workshop will give them a chance to make certain that their new vision is solidified before bringing it to Broadway later this season.

Based on the ’80s movie of the same name, Diner is about a group of high school friends who come together at a diner in Baltimore in 1959.  Directed by Kathleen Marshall (Nice Work If You Can Get It, Anything Goes) the musical has a libretto by the film’s original writer/director, Barry Levinson, and music and lyrics by Grammy-winning rock singer/songwriter Sheryl Crow.

Diner has not yet secured a Broadway theater, but currently the musical is planning for a April 10, 2013 opening.
