Musical Version of Ever After Eyes Broadway in 2007

Musical Version of Ever After Eyes Broadway in 2007
A musical version of the film Ever After is eyeing a Broadway bow in the summer of 2007. The tuner, which will mark the musical debut of recent Tony-winning director Doug Hughes, will feature music by Marcy Heisler and Zina Goldrich and a book by Julia Jordan.

Ever After is a retelling of Cinderella. The film, released in 1998, was directed by Andy Tennant and featured a screenplay by Tennant, Susannah Grant and Rick Parks based on Charles Perrault's classic tale. The movie, which starred Drew Barrymore, received mostly positive reviews and was a success at the box office.

Heisler and Goldrich have been collaborating since 1993 and are best known for writing the song "Taylor, the Latte Boy," performing together in The Marcy and Zina Show and penning the children's musical Junie B. Jones. Jordan's plays include Boy, Tatiana in Color, Smoking Lesson, The Summer of Swans and Walk Two Moons to open at the Lucille Lortel Theatre next month. She wrote the book for the musical version of Sarah, Plain and Tall and the libretto for the one-act Mice which was seen as part of 3hree.

The musical version of Ever After will be produced by Adam Epstein, who is best known for producing Hairspray. Epstein is also producing the musical version of Cry-Baby, which is now scheduled to have a tryout in the summer of 2006 and open on the Great White Way that fall.
