First Wives Club (Photos)
One of society’s favorite movies is finally coming to life on stage! The First Wives Club; made famous on-screen by Bette Midler, Goldie Hawn and Diane Keaton, is making it’s pre-Broadway tryout in Chicago! Based off of the 1996 film of the same title, the story follows three friends as they reunite years after graduating the same college to discover all three of them have been ditched by their husbands. The pre-Broadway engagement is led by Tony Award winner Faith Prince as Brenda, Christine Sherrill as Elise and Carmen Cusack as Annie. Today, Luner on Theatre brings you an exciting first look at the Broadway-bound musical, First Wives Club!
The First Wives Club musical is playing Chicago’s Oriental Theater through March 29th, 2015 only! The production features songs by a book by five-time Emmy Award nominee Linda Bloodworth with music by Holland-Dozier-Holland. The production is directed by Simon Phillips with choreography by David Connolly. The Chicago run of the production is currently being billed as the pre-Broadway tryout. However, at this time no official Broadway run regarding dates or a theater have been announced. Luner on Theatre will be sure to keep tabs on these three ladies as they make their way from Chicago to New York City! Thank you to DJ Pierce for the photos used in this blog post.
