Fox, according to Variety, is producing Family Fortune, which will debut at New Orleans' Mahalia Jackson Theater in summer 2012 with a possible Broadway bow after that time. The new musical features music by Alberto Carrion and Nile Rodgers; the latter is also producer of the score. Fox's wife, Cinda Firestone Fox, penned the book.

Fox is also at work on a revised version of Sophisticated Ladies for Las Vegas.
