Is JazzAge Musical Headed for Broadway?

News   Is JazzAge Musical Headed for Broadway?
A new musical penned by composer Desmond Child may be headed for Broadway.

The New York Times reports that Child's JazzAge, which will receive a workshop production next month, is aiming for a Broadway debut in 2005. The May 17 workshop will be held at Miami University. Set in 1920s Paris, the musical — co-written with author Davitt Sigerson — concerns a painter in New York "drawn into the bohemian orbit of Gertrude Stein and Picasso." In an earlier interview, Sigerson told the Miami University's Hurricane, "We're looking forward to workshopping [JazzAge]. It will help us see the weaknesses and strengths of the show and identify problems to be worked out. Like the saying goes, 'Musicals aren't written; they're rewritten.' . . . We wanted to write a rollicking, old-style, rich musical with a love story."

Composer Child has written such pop hits as "Livin' la Vida Loca" for Ricky Martin and "Livin' on a Prayer" for Bon Jovi.
