LoveMusik To Play On Broadway This Spring

LoveMusik To Play On Broadway This Spring

As noted here nearly two weeks ago, when award-winning playwright Alfred Uhry was introduced during his recent appearance at Minneapolis' Guthrie Theater, it was announced that he had written the book for a new musical LoveMusik, which supposedly would have its debut on Broadway this spring. In fact, it was also mentioned that the tuner would be helmed by legendary director Hal Prince. Of course, that was the first I had heard of this new show.

Now comes official word that the Manhattan Theatre Club will host that premiere. And what a starry affair it promises to be as both Michael Cerveris and Donna Murphy will headline the story in the roles of Kurt Weill and Lotte Lenya, respectively. Weill's music will also be featured.

LoveMusik is slated to open at the Biltmore Theatre on May 3, 2007 -- just in time for Tony consideration. If this proves to be a critical success, this year's Tony competition will only intensify as one of the strongest years for new musicals over the past couple decades.

This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).
