Menken is also at work on the new Broadway-aimed musical Leap of Faith, which features lyrics by Glenn Slater (Little Mermaid, Love Never Dies, Sister Act) and a book by Slater and Janus Cercone. The musical is set to debut Sept. 11 at the Center Theatre Group in Los Angeles prior to a possible Broadway arrival next year, though no official announcement has been made.
The musical centers on a con artist posing as a traveling reverend who seeks to take a small Kansas town for all its worth. Producers have released a promotional video for the new musical featuring Menken and Slater's gospel-infused title track.
