"I'm working on a book," for the show, said Joel, whose songbook was the basis on the Broadway show Movin' Out. "I'm talking to numerous people about writing a book. And I have sketches of music. "The working title is Good Career Move. It's about the music business. I'm going to take it apart. What Mel Brooks did to Broadway in The Producers, I'll do the to the music business."

Joel said all the songs will be original, and that he might collaborate with other composers on some of the songs.
