is also a musical
, based on the movie
, that played in LA
for a while and just recently opened off-Broadway
in New York City
. The play was co-written by Dan Studney
and Kevin Murphy
, and the choreography
was done by Paula Abdul
. Dan and Kevin are both successful TV writers, but I know them best from going to college
with them. As if they'd remember me.
I normally despise musicals, but knowing the people involved with this one, and the source material, I'm going to give it a shot. Also it won a lot of awards in the LA production, so I am pretty sure it will be worth the trip, so to speak.
The producer describes it as a cross between Leave it to Beaver and The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
