Based on the cult 1982 film of the same name that starred Michelle Pfeiffer and Maxwell Caulfield and failed to ignite the box office but became a cult favorite, it tells the heady love story of Pink Lady Stephanie Zinone and English transfer student Michael Carrington.
According to press materials, "it follows their road to romance from bowling alley to burger joint, sing-a-long-a-sex education class to talent show, and long (and beautifully lit) romantic motorcycle rides to a slightly incongruous luau ending. Featuring the songs 'Who's That Guy?,' 'Score Tonight,' 'Cool Rider' (which will be sung precariously atop a step ladder without the aid of wires for safety), 'Girl for all Seasons' and the haunting melody of 'Rock-a-Hula Luau (Summer Is Coming)'," this staged concert will "pay homage to its sheer brilliance and shortcomings with many surprises along the way."
Produced by Christopher D. Clegg and James DP Drury, casting is still to be announced.
