Luner Lowdown: I am so incredibly excited about Tuck Everlasting coming to Broadway this season for many reasons. First of all, this story is one I have loved for a very long time. I read this story growing up as a teenager and then saw the film version of the story which came out just over a decade ago in 2002. I always imagined this story would be a great one for the stage and am happy to see that at last coming to life. The show was slated for a pre-Broadway debut in Boston in 2013. However, that was cancelled due to a lack of available New York theaters and the show was never mounted until just this past year. Another reason I am very excited for Tuck Everlasting is the creative team involved with the show. Casey Nicholaw is a true genius when it comes to Broadway. Nicholaw also brings along a fantastic creative team for his shows in particular, costume designer Gregg Barnes who has produced some of the most beautiful and authentic costumes on Broadway. I can’t to see what this show holds in store. Let’s hope the word forever plays to their advantage.
