Denver Will Host Pre-Broadway Premiere of Frozen

12715613_681886425286931_3891212400386922775_nElsa is climbing to the highest mountain to not only “Let It Go”, but try herself out in front of audiences before heading to Broadway. While Chicago has become Broadway’s ultimate out-of-town tryout center, Disney just announced their latest Broadway musical will tryout far from the Windy City in a region where Else, Anna and Olaf may just feel right at home. Today, Luner on Theatre brings you the exciting news that the Denver Center For The Performing Arts will be home to the pre-Broadway premiere of Frozen The Musical!

8180424980_a56728538c_bThe Denver Center For The Performing Arts (Pictured Right) announced it’s 2016-17 season lineup and along with that announcement came one large surprise! Denver will be home to the pre-Broadway premiere of Disney’s latest stage musical, Frozen. The production will specifically play the Buell Theatre at the Denver Center.As the nation’s largest not-for-profit theatre organization, DCPA has hosted Disney Broadway-bound musicals before. The theatre helped Disney’s The Little Mermaid get its sea legs before that production headed to Broadway in 2008. Exact dates for the run of Frozen in Denver will be announced at a later time. Thanks to Jim Nix for the photo above right!

7.161187As previously reported by Luner on Theatre, Disney will bring Frozen to Broadway in Spring 2018 following a pre-Broadway tryout out-of-town in Summer 2017. Exact dates, casting and a Broadway theatre for the production will be announced at a later time. The production will be directed by Tony Award nominee Alex Timbers (Insert Shiver Me Timbers Joke Here & Pictured Left) and choreographed by Tony Award winner Peter Darling. Just this week, Disney announced the rest of the creative team for the production as well! The production is set to feature a scenic and costume design by Bob Crowley, a lighting design by Natasha Katz and a sound design by Peter Hylenski. Stephen Oremus will serve as musical supervisor for the production.

Frozen Is Officially Coming To Broadway

The stage production is set to reunite the movie’s creative team with Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez writing music and lyrics for additional original songs as well all their original music from the film. Jennifer Lee, who was screenwriter and co-director of the film, will write the musical’s book for Broadway.

Denver-performing-artsLuner Lowdown: Well, that didn’t take long! Just days after Disney announced its creative teams and plans to bring Frozen to Broadway, Denver announced it would host the pre-Broadway tryout for the production at the DCPA (Pictured Right). A smart move on Disney’s behalf for two reasons. First of all, Disney has worked there before. As we mentioned above, The Little Mermaid got itself together here and was able to assemble before Broadway. Disney has worked here and knows what it is headed into. Second and more importantly; It’s far away from New York. With critics willing to now head to Boston and even sometimes Chicago to check out a show even before they make their Broadway bows, Denver might just be far enough to keep some away until a Broadway bow for Frozen is Frozen (God, I really hate myself). A smart move to allow time for the show to develop. Despite the reviews the show gets out-of-town, there is no doubt work will be done between the Denver production and Broadway. Sometimes, that work is drastic. Look at Disney’s Aladdin currently on Broadway. Panned by critics in Toronto before hitting New York, the show won over audiences and critics here totally revamping itself before it’s official Broadway bow.

As promised, Luner on Theatre will keep you updated on Disney’s latest Broadway-bound musical, Frozen, as more is revealed about the production leading up to its pre-Broadway tryout and move to New York City! With still plenty of time before this show hits the stage, we’re off to build a snowman! Yes, we’re truly that excited! For more information, visit Frozen on Broadway’s Official Website, Facebook or Twitter. (Please note; Unless a photo is noted to be taken by Luner on Theatre, we do not own/claim ownership for any photos used in this post.) And of course, check out the rest of Luner on Theatre for all your theatre news you don’t only need but want to know and so much more!

West End Funny Girl Run Extended Before Even Beginning

12190819_968740636518738_1268075700062546120_nLondon’s theatre scene works much differently from Broadway. Many productions begin as limited engagements and have the possibility to extended as Broadway is quite literally the opposite. However, with a string of recent hits heading to the stage, London theatre-goers have proved they just can’t get enough as countless American and British productions continue to extend their previously planned runs on the London stage. Today, Luner on Theatre brings you the exciting news that the upcoming West End run of Funny Girl has been extended months before performances have even begun!

53d49b613a8a0_-_240513-sheridan-smith-jqp8ce-lgnProducers in London have announced that due to “unprecedented demand” in ticket sales, the upcoming West End run of Funny Girl has already extended its booking period into October 2016 as well as Olivier Award winner Sheridan Smith (Pictured Right) starring in the production as Fanny Brice. This news comes months before the West End run has even begun in London. Currently, the show is playing Menier Chocolate Factory where performances began November 20th before the production officially opened December 2nd, 2015. The show is slated to run there through March 5th, 2016. The current run of the show, at Menier, sold out its entire run within 90 minutes of tickets going on sale. This is what prompted a West End transfer announcement so early. Funny Girl will move to The Savoy Theatre where performances begin April 9th, 2016. The show was originally slated as a limited engagement of 12 weeks only through July 2016 but has since extended.

Luner on Theatre Announces Funny Girls Off-West End Return

aPUO4QB4Tony Award winner Michael Mayer (Pictured Left) mounts the London return of Funny Girl with choreography by Lynne Page. The rest of the creative team includesMichael Pavelka as scenic designer, Matthew Wright as costume designer, Mark Henderson as lighting designer and Richard Brooker as sound designer. Alan Williams is musical supervisor while Chris Walker provides orchestrations. Mayer is no stranger to Broadway or London having mounted Spring Awakening and Thoroughly Modern Millie in the West End previously. On Broadway, Mayer most recently presented Hedwig And The Angry Inch as well as American Idiot, Spring Awakening and Thoroughly Modern Millie to name a few.

Aside from Smith as Fanny Brice leading Funny Girl back to London, other leading characters include Darius Campbell as Nick Arnstein,Marilyn Cutts as Mrs. Brice, Valda Aviksas Mrs. O’Malley, Natasha J. Barnes as Emma/Mrs. Meeker, Maurice Lane as Mr. Keeney, Bruce Montague as Ziegfeld, Joel Montague as Eddie and Gay Soper as Mrs. Strakosh. The ensemble includes Emma Caffrey, Matthew Croke, Joelle Dyson, Rebecca Fennelly, Luke Fetherston, Leah Harris, Kelly Homewood, Sammy Kelly and Stuart Ramsay.

savoy_theatre_covent_gardenLuner Lowdown: London is the land of extended theatre productions! Multiple U.S. and British based hits have announced over the past several weeks they will continue their run in the West End longer than expected due to demand in ticket sales. This is very exciting and a sign that London’s West End is perhaps growing with a number of productions U.K. theatre-goers are highly interested in seeing. Despite how well Funny Girl does in London’s West End, this is more than likely the last extension at The Savoy the show will see. It was announced last week the London premiere of Dreamgirls will take residence at that theatre beginning in November. Further life for the London return of Funny Girl has yet to be announced but of course, many are hopeful for a Broadway revival as well.

Luner on Theatre will keep you updated as London’s West End prepares to welcome back Funny Girl starring Sheridan Smith! We hope to bring you a first look at the show once it has moved to the West End and even more surrounding this exciting revival! If you want to see the Off-West End run of this show at Menier, there is less than one month left! For more information, visit Funny Girl’s Official Website, Facebook or Twitter. (Please note; Unless a photo is noted to be taken by Luner on Theatre, we do not own/claim ownership for any photos used in this post.) And of course, check out the rest of Luner on Theatre for all your theatre news you don’t only need but want to know and so much more!

Harry Potter And The Cursed Child Story Will Be Published

cursed-child_0London’s New Harry Potter play continues to make headlines months before performances have even begun! With tickets flying out of the box office faster than ever before in the West End, many have worried they will end up waiting months if not years to learn of the new adventures their beloved Harry Potter is facing. Fear no longer. Author of the Harry Potter series J.K. Rowling announced a fix, although it will not be the final version, for those interested in learning about Harry’s adventures yet unable to see the new London stage production. Today, Luner on Theatre brings you the exciting news that the new Harry Potter And The Cursed Child play set to hit London in Summer 2016 will also be published as a new book!

Ca3FES2W8AA22F-J.K. Rowling announced this morning that her latest Harry Potter story, Harry Potter And The Cursed Child which will come to life on stage in London’s West End this summer, will also be published as a book. The book, Harry Potter And The Cursed Child Parts I & II, will be published titled a “Special Rehearsal Edition” and available for purchase at midnight July 31st, 2016. The specific date comes with a reason; It is the day following the show’s official opening in the West End. The story will be available as an eBook as well as in print editions with Rowling’s digital company Pottermore collaborating with Little Brown Book Group in the United Kingdom and Scholastic in the United States and Canada. The “Special Rehearsal Edition” will not be the final edition of the script or story presented on stage as changes occur in previews and performances leading up to opening night. A “Definitive Collector’s Edition” will be available at a later date.

Harry Potter Play Makes West End History

palace-theatre-in-shaftbury-london-united-kingdom+1152_12934424863-tpfil02aw-6232Harry Potter And The Cursed Child will begin previews in London in late May 2016 before officially opening July 30th, 2016. The show is slated to play at London’s Palace Theatre (Pictured Left). The show made headlines this past Fall selling over 175,000 tickets in its first day alone and over £20 million worth of tickets in just over its first week. That number sets a record for the largest advance for a single show in West End history. Tickets for the show are nearly sold out for a year with the earliest date for purchase in May 2017, a year after previews are expected to begin. The show extended its original booking period three times before reaching the current status it is at. The craze for tickets took place back in October when they first went on sale and rehearsals and performances for the show were still more than six months away.

Harry Potter Magic Strikes London Again

JK-Rowling-PhotosJ.K. Rowling (Pictured Right) truly needs no formal introduction, but how could we not talk about her in an article mentioning a new book for a series she created! After all, she is the author of the Harry Potter series which has sold over 450 million copies and been translated into 78 different languages. The book series has not only won multiple awards but is the best-selling book series in history. The last four books of the series are the fastest selling books in history. The Harry Potter films, all based off of the books, are the second highest-grossing film series in history. Universal Studios in Florida has launched a Harry Potter World theme park and overall, the entire Harry Potter brand is worth over $15 billion dollars.

how-to-throw-an-awesome-party-as-told-by-harry-po-1-21232-1383855888-37_bigLuner Lowdown: The decision to publish a “Special Rehearsal Edition” of the new Harry Potter And The Cursed Child is a brilliant move on the part of the productions. There are thousands of individuals around the world who will not be able to make it to London to see this new work on stage and will want to know this new story joining their Harry Potter world. It will not mark the final edition of the stage script that will be presented in London but at least it will give readers and fans across the world the chance to see what Harry is up to 19 years later. The move will no doubt push even more ticket sales for the upcoming production and other productions still yet to be announced. I mean, c’mon; Can we just announce a Broadway production already?

Luner on Theatre will keep you updated on Harry Potter And The Cursed Child as it makes its way to the stage in London’s West End later this year! We’re expanding our London Lookout like never before to cover this production which has caused a media stir months before a rehearsal for the show has even begun. We can’t wait to see what kind of new magic this production conjures up. For more information, visit Harry Potter And The Cursed Child’s Official WebsiteFacebook or Twitter. (Please note; Unless a photo is noted to be taken by Luner on Theatre, we do not own/claim ownership for any photos used in this post.) And of course, check out the rest of Luner on Theatre for all your theatre news you don’t only need but want to know and so much more!

In The Heights In London Extends

In-The-Heights-ArtworkLondon’s Off West End has welcomed back a Tony Award winning American musical. While many associate Lin-Manuel Miranda’s name with Hamilton only, Miranda burst onto the Broadway scene with his hip-hop style and antics almost a decade ago with a little show about home. In The Heights, a musical about Manhattan’s Washington Heights neighborhood, won over American audiences in its debut in 2008 on and Broadway and has only continued to prove itself since. Now, the other side of the pond is learning about one of Manhattan’s most interesting neighborhoods. Today, Luner on Theatre brings you the exciting news that In The Heights at London’s King’s Cross Theatre has extended!

intheheightsBroadway’s Tony Award winning In The Heights musical has extended once again in London. Originally scheduled for a limited 4 week run at King’s Cross Theatre, the show has now extended a third time adding six additional months to it’s already extended run allowing audiences to now purchase tickets through the end of October 2016. In The Heights returns to London following its critically acclaimed and sold out premiere at London’s Southwark Playhouse in 2014. Luke Sheppard, who directed the 2014 UK premiere of In The Heights, returns as director to this second mounting along with Drew McOnie as choreographer. McOnie choreographed the UK premiere as well winning an Off West Award for his work. Thanks to Johan Persson for the photo above right!

Photo Credit Johan PerssonCurrently, the London cast of In The Heights includes David Bedella as Kevin, Josie Benson as Camila, Vas Constanti as Piragua Guy, Jade Ewen as Vanessa, Lily Frazer as Nina, Philippa Stefani as Daniela, Sam Mackay as Usnavi, Antoine Murray-Straughan as Graffiti Pete, Sarah Naudi as Carla, Eve Polycarpou as Abuela, Joe Aaron Reid as Benny and Cleve September making his London stage debut as Sonny. The ensemble of the production includes Jocasta Almgill, Courtney-Mae Briggs, Michael Cortez, Gabriela Garcia, Reiss Hinds, Alexandra Sarmiento and Spin.

The London creative team for In The Heights includes Takis as scenic designer, Gabriella Slade as costume designer, Howard Hudson as lighting designer and Gareth Owen as sound designer. Casting for the show is by Will Burton. The London production of In The Heights is produced by Tristan Baker and Charlie Parsons for Runaway Entertainment Ltd and Paul Taylor Mills.

4247249969_441252da99In The Heights was first presented in Connecticut in 2005 at National Music Theatre Conference at the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center. The show moved Off-Broadway playing 37 Arts Theatre from February 2007 through July 2007. The show moved to Broadway in 2008 playing The Richard Rodgers Theatre (Pictured Right) on 46th street where it officially opened in March 2008. Most of the Off-Broadway cast transferred to Broadway with the production as well as the creative team helmed by Thomas Kail as director and Andy Blankenbuehler as choreographer. The production was critically acclaimed not only winning the 51st Annual Grammy Award for Best Musical Album but was also nominated for 13 Tony Awards before going on to win four including Best Musical.

Luner Lowdown: I’m thrilled to hear audiences in London are finally able to enjoy Broadway’s Tony Award winning In The Heights. In The Heights returns following its success in London in 2014 when it played a limited engagement that sold out quickly. I will be interested to see if following this success, the production moves to London’s West End bringing in larger audiences and launching the show into a larger spotlight in Europe. Of course, the hype and success of In The Heights is only the beginning as London hopes to welcome Lin-Manuel Miranda’s latest hit, Hamilton, to the West End in 2017. All of the success of his first Broadway production will only lend to Hamilton in the coming future. It would be interesting if the show transferred and Miranda found himself with two West End hits playing at the same time.

Luner on Theatre will keep you updated on In The Heights and it’s continued success in London! There is no word yet on a life for the production following the current extension of the show through October 2016. We will be interested to see if the show continues to play at Kings Cross Theatre or moves itself to a London West End house bringing the show to life on a much larger scale. For more information, visit In The Heights UK Official Website, Facebook or Twitter. (Please note; Unless a photo is noted to be taken by Luner on Theatre, we do not own/claim ownership for any photos used in this post.) And of course, check out the rest of Luner on Theatre for all your theatre news you don’t only need but want to know and so much more!

To Kill A Mockingbird Is Coming To Broadway

715VLP6M-OLHalf a century after its story first came to life on the page, To Kill A Mockingbird will receive new life once again. Since its debut, it has been made into a film and even recently received a sequel, billed as a prequel, titled Go Set A Watchman. However, despite the countless years since this story first entered our lives, it has managed to remain prominent as one we continue to tell and pass down from generation to generation. That tradition continues with today’s exciting news but in a very new format. Today, Luner on Theatre brings you the exciting news that Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird will be adapted for the Broadway stage in a brand new production!

62nd+Annual+Tony+Awards+Press+Room+7iHaGmI2XGWlScott Rudin is bringing another classic to Broadway. However, this time it will be no revival but instead a debut. Oscar winner Aaron Sorkin is adapting To Kill A Mockingbird for the Broadway stage. The production will be directed by Tony Award winner Bartlett Sher (Pictured Right), who is currently represented on Broadway with the critically acclaimed Fiddler On The Roof and the Tony Award winning Best Musical Revival of The King And I. Rudin will produce the new work which is hoping to premiere during the Broadway 2017-18 season. Casting, a theatre or exact dates for the show’s premiere have not been announced yet.

Aaron+Sorkin+Book+Mormon+Broadway+Opening+iKieP1YyG_OlAaron Sorkin (Pictured Left) is an American screenwriter, producer and playwright. Sorkin has created countless works both on the stage and screen and is well-known for his writing and creations in both worlds. On the screen, he was the screenwriter for the Oscar-winning film The Social Network. He is also the creator, screenwriter and executive producer of the Emmy-winning television series The West Wing, which ran on television from 1999-2006. Most recently, he was the screenwriter for the film Steve Jobs based off of the book by Walter Isaacson of the same name. You may also recognize his work as creator, screenwriter and executive producer of The Newsroom television series which ran from 2012-14. On the stage, Sorkin is best known for penning A Few Good Men, which also adapted into a success film, as well as The Farnsworth Invention.

Producer Scott Rudin noted that this Broadway version of the show is brand new and is not related to the To Kill A Mockingbird stage production seen in London in 2013 or Minneapolis in 2015.

to_kill_a_mockingbird_3_peckLuner Lowdown: To Kill A Mockingbird is my favorite book I’ve ever read. It has been since I first picked up the novel in high school years ago and I’ve always mentioned a stage production of the story on such a large-scale was deeply needed. This book is not only a favorite for myself but many others and is read by almost every young adult in schools around the nation. It follows a lawyer in a town in the deep south as he defends a African American man accused of rape. The story is excellent and it’s teachings are priceless. I could think of countless quotes this book holds, but I’ll spare you (But have included a tasting below). The story was turned into a film as well featuring Gregory Peck (Pictured Above Right). A stage production about this story and a need for understanding between different people and cultures could not come to Broadway at a better time. I hope schools will also have the chance to experience this classic in its stage life on Broadway in the coming years and see first hand how stories can be translated into different forms of entertainment for different audiences.

Luner on Theatre will keep you updated as To Kill A Mockingbird heads to the Broadway stage at last. As mentioned above, with an expected starting in the 2017-18 season, we will still have plenty of time to learn about this new production and all its details. Tickets for the production are not yet on sale. At this time, new official website or social media for the production exists. We will update you as soon as they do. (Please note; Unless a photo is noted to be taken by Luner on Theatre, we do not own/claim ownership for any photos used in this post.) And of course, check out the rest of Luner on Theatre for all your theatre news you don’t only need but want to know and so much more!

Frozen Will Arrive On Broadway In Spring 2018

12715613_681886425286931_3891212400386922775_nDisney and Broadway just can’t Let It Go. As if Broadway hasn’t seen enough sister power this season, The Great White Way will welcome the infamous Anna and Elsa in 2018 as Disney Theatrical prepares to mount yet another Broadway show just five years after their latest stage hit, the Tony Award nominated Aladdin, flew into New York. Today, Luner on Theatre brings you the exciting news that Disney’s Frozen will officially arrive on Broadway in the spring of 2018!

7.161187Disney Theatrical Productions has announced Frozen will come to Broadway in Spring 2018 following a pre-Broadway tryout in the Summer of 2017. A city and venue for the pre-Broadway tryout will be announced at a later time. Details for the show’s Broadway bow are also to be determined with casting, a theatre and exact dates not yet confirmed. The show will be directed by Tony Award nominee Alex Timbers (Pictured Right), who previously worked with Disney to stage it’s Peter And The Starcatcher on Broadway as well. The show will be choreographed by Tony Award winner Peter Darling who has choreographed Matilda and Billy Elliot on Broadway and in London’s West End as well.

Kristen+Anderson+Lopez+Robert+Lopez+Frozen+YWcZo2GNg5UlDisney made the exciting announcement they have also completed the rest of the creative team for Frozen in addition to Timbers and Darling. The stage production will reunite the movie’s creative team with Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez (Pictured Left) writing music and lyrics for additional original songs as well all their original music from the film. Jennifer Lee, who was screenwriter and co-director of the film, will write the musical’s book for Broadway. As for design elements, the production will feature a scenic and costume design by Bob Crowley, a lighting design by Natasha Katz and a sound design by Peter Hylenski. Stephen Oremus will serve as musical supervisor for the productions.

tlkpicFrozen will mark the ninth musical and tenth overall production Disney Theatrical has brought to Broadway under the direction of Thomas Schumacher. Under his direction, countless Disney animated movies have made their move from the screen to a life on the stage. Disney began its Broadway adventure with Beauty And The Beast followed by their mega-hit, The Lion King, which is still running on Broadway today close to 20 years after it first bowed. These musicals not only brought a new generation and audience to Broadway but helped push for the cleanup of Times Square in the 1990’s. Other classics Disney has brought to the stage include Tarzan, AIDA, The Little Mermaid, Mary Poppins and Aladdin, which can currently be seen at Disney’s flagship theatre, The New Amsterdam on 42nd Street (Pictured Above Left in the 1990’s)

52af0abd54e2cLuner Lowdown: Disney will bring their latest hit, Frozen, to the Broadway stage just five years after the film first debuted in movie theaters around the country and smashed box office records. The turnaround is the second quickest after Disney took less than four years to bring The Lion King to Broadway after that film won over audiences at the box office as well. Frozen’s success on-screen was huge for Disney and their largest since their animation department produced The Lion King, Aladdin, The Hunchback Of Notre Dame and countless others gems during what many call Disney’s Golden Age in the 1990’s. The film grossed $1.3 billion worldwide and was critically praised. The film won the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song for “Let It Go”. The movie’s knockout cast included Tony Award winner Idina Menzel, belting out the iconic “Let It Go”, as well as Kristen Bell and Broadway favorites Josh Gad, Jonathan Groff and Santino Fontana.

Luner on Theatre will keep you updated on Disney’s Frozen coming to Broadway in Spring 2018! We’re extremely looking forward to learning more about this production in the coming months and year! We just can’t Let It Go. For more information, visit Frozen on Broadway’s Official Website, Facebook or Twitter. (Please note; Unless a photo is noted to be taken by Luner on Theatre, we do not own/claim ownership for any photos used in this post.) And of course, check out the rest of Luner on Theatre for all your theatre news you don’t only need but want to know and so much more!
