News   Lee Hall's Pitmen Painters Aiming for 2010 Broadway Bow
 
Lee Hall, newly minted Tony winner for Best Book of a Musical for his work on Billy Elliot, announced in the Tony press room that he will be returning to Broadway next season with his London success, The Pitmen Painters, another piece about British miners.

This work, however, is the story of a group of miners who take a painting course and wind up as artists of note.

Hall said a theatre has not yet been chosen, but the production will likely open on Broadway in March 2010.

Inspired by a book by William Feaver, the London production of Pitmen Painters won five Evening Standard Awards.
