Honeymoon in Vegas, the new Jason Robert Brown-scored musical that received its world premiere at Paper Mill Playhouse and is aiming to play Broadway, cannot currently find an available Broadway house suitable for the production, according to the New York Post.
The musical, featuring a score by Brown and a book by Andrew Bergman — the director and screenwriter of the original Castle Rock Entertainment motion picture of the same title — received strong reviews following its Oct. 6 opening, including a rave from the New York Times, and critics buzzed about its possible transfer.

The Post reports that producer Roy Gabay wants to bring the production to New York City, but every musical house is currently booked.
Performances continue at New Jersey's Paper Mill Playhouse through Oct. 27.
Honeymoon in Vegas, according to press notes, "is an insanely funny musical that tells the tale of Jack Singer (McClure), a guy with an extraordinary fear of marriage, who finally overcomes his phobia and goes to Las Vegas to wed his longtime girlfriend, Betsy (O’Malley). Enter Tommy Korman (Danza), a widowed and unscrupulous gambler looking for another shot at love. Tommy spots Betsy, who bears an uncanny resemblance to his late wife, and the game is afoot."
