According to the notice, Alice By Heart, which also features a book co-written with Jessie Nelson (screenwriter for "I Am Sam"), will be developed Nov. 30-Dec. 18 at MCC. Lear deBessonet (Good Person of Szechwan, The Tempest) will helm the production with choreography by Chase Brock (Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark).
Jason Hart will be music supervisor, and Chris Fenwick is music director.
No official announcement about the workshop has been made.
The new musical is based on Lewis Carroll's "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and was first developed at London's National Theatre in 2012, as part of the National Theatre's Connections program that unites youth theatres in the U.K. The creators developed a streamlined version that was then presented by young performers across the U.K.
Alice By Heart was again up for development in May 2014 as part of Theatre Aspen's play development series, allowing the creative team to expand the show to its intended full-length format. Among the cast of the workshop were Hamilton's Phillipa Soo, Mike Faist (Newsies) and Riley Costello (Everyday Rapture).
