Yet another movie is on the verge of becoming a Broadway show. Broadway and Off-Broadway producer Daryl Roth has purchased the stage rights for the recent British independent film Kinky Boots and plans to make it into a Broadway musical. A creative team has not yet been announced, but reportedly Jerry Mitchell (Legally Blonde) is in talks to direct.
It’s the next best thing to Broadway porn: Broadway Bares, the popular annual fundraiser in which Broadway performers get down to their skivvies in order to earn money for Broadway Cares, is getting its own companion coffee table book featuring racy photos and a history of the event. Written by Broadway Bares‘ creator, director/choreographer Jerry Mitchell, Backstage Pass: Broadway Bares will be released on June 1.
