A casting notice says that In My Life will begin rehearsals in late August with performances set to begin on or about Sept. 26 at the Music Box Theatre. The Music Box recently housed Dame Edna: Back with a Vengeance and will soon welcome a limited engagement of Antony Sher in Primo, July 8-Aug. 7.
Brooks will also direct the new musical, which is being produced by TBF Music Corp.
In My Life, according to the casting notice, is a "coming of age love story set in New York City. J.T., a singer/songwriter, age 22-26, falls in love with a young woman, age 22-26, who works at the Village Voice." The show has previously been produced twice as an AEA Workshop.
Joe Brooks won an Academy Award, a Golden Globe and an ASCAP Award for the song "You Light Up My Life." He has also composed for such films as "Jeremy," "The Lords of Flatbush," "If Ever I See You Again," "Headin' for Broadway" and "Invitation to the Wedding."
The Music Box Theatre is located at 239 West 45th Street.
