Filmmaker Michael Moore ("Bowling for Columbine," "Roger & Me") recently took to the stage at London's Roundhouse Theatre in Michael Moore: Live, a uniquely theatrical version of his political and social rantings on topics ranging from Osama Bin Laden and Sept. 11 to a send-up of American education, game show style, titled "Stump the Yank." Variety reports Moore will bring Live to a Broadway theatre in March for a 10 -week run. Always controversial, Moore came to the forefront with his film "Roger & Me," a funny, biting documentary about car plant troubles in Flint, Michigan. Since then, he's had an unsuccessful TV show and authored the book "Stupid White Men and Other Sorry Excuses for the State of the Nation." "Bowling for Columbine," released early this year, looks at the issue of gun control by examining Charlton Heston, Marilyn Manson, the Columbine security camera tapes from the day of the student shooting and the owners of the North Country Bank (open an account, get a free gun).
David Johnson, Karl Sydow and Elan McAllister will produce. McAllister told Variety they were looking for a 1,000 seat Broadway house.
