Based on Mary Rodgers' 1972 novel, Freaky Friday first hit screens in 1976, starring Barbara Harris and Jodie Foster. The popular franchise has been remade on screen twice since then, as a 1995 TV movie with Shelley Long and Gaby Hoffman, and again in 2003 with Jamie Lee Curtis and Lindsay Lohan. Disney Theatrical Productions developed the contemporary stage musical adaptation, which has a book by Bridget Carpenter (Friday Night Lights, Parenthood), original songs by Tony and Pulitzer Prize winners Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey (Next to Normal, If/Then), and a score by David Lawrence. Freaky Friday premiered at Washington, D.C.'s Signature Theatre in 2016.
The production features direction by Steve Carr, production design by Perry Andelin Blake, costume design by Angus Strathie and choreography by John Carrafa.
Freaky Friday is produced by Thomas Schumacher, Steve Carr, Susan Cartsonis, Lisa Towers and Jonathan Shore.
