BOOP! The 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 plan did not pan out due to financial issues.

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 was finally slated to premiere in Chicago and then expected to open on Broadway in 2025. The Chicago engagement ran from the 19th of November, 2023 to the 31st of December, 2023 at the CIBC Theatre in Chicago.

Jasmine Amy Rogers, who recently finished a run as the scene-stealing Gretchen Wieners in the national tour of Mean Girls, has been cast in the title role of the pre-Broadway world premiere of BOOP! The Musical.

Comparison to The Barbie Movie

The BOOP! The Musical storyline has many similar traits to the 2023 Barbie hit movie.

Throughout its theatrical run, Greta Gerwig's film based on the iconic Mattel toy earned over $1.4 billion worldwide with $636 million of that coming from the US domestic market,

BOOP! The Musical Get Greenlit

This massive box office revenue of Barbie may have something to do with the Boop! The Musical finally getting greenlit for Broadway, as the show had been languishing since 2003 without really doing anything, until Barbie appeared at movie theaters.
