‘Ever After’, a New Musical Based on the Film, Will Open on Broadway in 2013

Yay! Another musical based on a film!

It was announced this morning that Ever After, a new musical based on the 1998 Drew Barrymore film , will open on Broadway in the 2013-2014 season following a pre-Broadway engagement out of town.

As much as I’m not a big fan of musicals based on films, the show will be directed and choreographed by three-time Tony Award winner Kathleen Marshall, which makes it incredibly promising.

It’ll feature music by Zina Goldrich and book & lyrics by Marcy Heisler, who recently won the 2012 Kleban Prize for Musical Theatre for most promising musical theatre lyricist. The music director is Mary-Mitchell Campbell.

Ever After tells the story of Danielle de Barbarac, the daughter of a Nobleman in 16th Century France, who embarks on a series of adventures, standing up to her scheming stepmother, befriending Leonardo DaVinci and winning the love of the crown prince of France. This new musical sets the record straight on the fable of Cinderella, showing how a strong-willed, independent girl can make her dreams come true without the help of fairy godmothers, talking mice, or magic pumpkins.

Casting, dates and other creative team will be announced at a later date.
