BOOP! The Betty Boop Musical on Broadway Background

The Betty Boop Musical Developed in 2003

The Betty Boop Broadway musical has been in the works since 2003.

When the original musical was first developed in 2003, it was set for a 2005 premiere in the Netherlands but that did not pan out.

2007 Version of the Show

The musical was later taken over in 2007 by Sally Robinson and Oscar Williams, who partnered with Susan Birkenhead and David Foster. They developed a new version of the show.

The musical was then set to debut again in the Netherlands, but this time in 2011 - which also failed.

2023 Chicago Production And Then Broadway

Betty Boop is finally slated to premiere in Chicago and then expected to open on Broadway in 2024. The Chicago engagement will run from the 19th of November, 2023 to the 31st of December, 2023 at the CIBC Theatre in Chicago.
