The two-year-old show — which recently passed the 900-performance mark — returned its $10 million capitalization late last year (2004).
James L. Nederlander, Hal Luftig, Scott E. Nederlander, Terry Allen Kramer, Clear Channel Entertainment and Emanuel Azenberg present the Broadway run of the musical as well as the current national tour.
Movin' Out creators Billy Joel and Twyla Tharp won Tony Awards for orchestrations (with Stuart Malina) and choreography, respectively. The show, which opened Oct. 24, 2002 on Broadway, launched its national tour from Detroit's Fisher Theatre, Jan. 27, 2004.
The bookless show, currently residing at Broadway's Richard Rodgers Theatre, uses Joel's song lyrics and Tharp's choreography to tell the story of five friends and lovers across three decades through love, war and loss. There is no dialogue and all songs are performed by the pianist-singer, who sings non-stop and heads an on-stage band during the show.
Movin' Out performs on Broadway at the Richard Rodgers, 226 West 46th Street. For more information, visit www.movinoutonbroadway.com.
