A story of courage, redemption, and pee is heading to the Off-Broadway stage. A musical adaptation of Sarah Silverman's memoir The Bedwetter is poised to premiere in Atlantic Theater company's yet-to-be-announced 2019–2020 season.

The comedian shared the news at the Tribeca Film Festival during an interview with Mike Birbiglia, according to Variety. A representative for Atlantic declined to comment at this time.

Silverman first announced her intentions to musicalize her 2010 book The Bedwetter: Stories of Courage, Redemption, and Pee in 2014, at which point she revealed that composer Adam Schlesinger (Broadway's Cry-Baby) was at work on the score. Schlesinger is still on board, as is Significant Other and Bad Jews playwright Joshua Harmon.

Though this would mark Silverman's first New York theatrical adventure, she has been vocal about her affinity for musicals. Her 2005 comedy special Jesus Is Magic is replete with (explicit) songs, she appeared in the 2005 film adaptation of Rent, and she has sung such showtunes as "On My Own" and "I Don't Need Anything But You" side-by-side with Seth Rudetsky.
