His subject will be the music industry that pop singer-songwriter Joel knows so well. The still-germinating seed of the project is being discussed by Joel and producer James Nederlander Jr., a producer of the song-and-dance driven Movin' Out, now packing them in at the Richard Rodgers Theatre.
A book writer is being sought, according to The Post. In the Tony Award-winning Movin' Out, director-choreographer Twyla Tharp creates a story of Long Island friends who come of age in the 1960s and '70s, all to the live soundtrack (performed on-stage by singer Michael Cavanaugh and played by a band).
Joel won a 2003 Tony Award for his Movin' Out orchestrations (he shared the award with Stuart Malina), and Tharp took home the Best Choreography Tony.
