The Zina Goldrich-Marcy Heisler Cinderella-inspired musical Ever After, shepherded by Tony Award-winning director-choreographer Kathleen Marshall, will receive an upcoming lab presentation in New York City, according to an Equity casting notice.
Producers Kevin McCollum, Scott Landis and Philip Morgaman are developing the new musical, based on the hit 20th Century Fox feature film that starred Drew Barrymore, which will test its legs in a late April to mid-May developmental lab.
The show has music by Goldrich and book and lyrics by Heisler. Mary-Mitchell Campbell (Company, Sweeney Todd) will serve as musical director.
Tony Award winner Marshall (Anything Goes, Nice Work If You Can Get It) will direct and choreograph the production.
Heisler and Goldrich also authored the children's musicals Junie B. Jones and Dear Edwina. Heisler was named a 2012 recipient of the Kleban Prize for Musical Theatre.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
