Choreographer Carrafa Will Direct Beach Boys Musical

News   Choreographer Carrafa Will Direct Beach Boys Musical John Carrafa is attached as director of the developing new Beach Boys musical, Variety reported.

The Broadway-aimed show would be the Broadway directorial debut for the choreographer of Into the Woods, Dance of the Vampires and Urinetown. As previously reported by Playbill On-Line, the new Dodger-produced show has an original book by Richard Dresser (Rounding Third, Below the Belt) and uses the songs of the Beach Boys. The plot, however, is not a biographical tale of the blond-mopped California band that celebrated cars, girls and surfing in the 1960s.

"It will be a new hybrid," Carrafa told Variety, "somewhere between Mamma Mia! and Moving Out."

No time frame for production has been announced.
