The Wiz heads out on tour in September 2023 before making its way to Broadway for a spring 2024 opening. That leaves you plenty of time to get obsessed with this version of the Emerald City before Wicked part one makes its theatrical debut.
Future bucket list items…
Disney Pixar’s Coco is coming off the screen! The Day of the Dead tale of love, loss, and identity is being adapted for the stage with Michael Giacchino, Robert Lopez, and Kristen Anderson-Lopez currently behind what will surely be a beloved soundtrack.
The Devil Wears Prada
As if bringing classic 2000s dramedy to the stage wasn’t exciting enough, Elton John is behind the music for this project. This show has already seen the stage during a pre-Broadway tryout last summer at the James L. Nederlander Theatre, so we have our fingers crossed for more Broadway news.
There isn’t a lot of information about this adaptation of a classic American novel, but we do have some exciting details. With Florence Welch of Florence + The Machine working on the music and lyrics and a premiere set for 2024 at the Cambridge Repertory Theatre, things are moving for this look at the Roaring 20s. We’re just waiting for an invite to the party!
La La Land
La La Land rocked the big screen as a movie musical, and now it’s taking on the stage. The adaptation of was officially announced earlier this year. A creative team has already been assembled, and the story is officially in the hands of Tony Award-winning director Bartlett Sher with Justin Hurwitz working on the music and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul. With such a recent announcement, we’ll likely be waiting a while for more news of this musical.
