Tony Award-winning director Joe Mantello (Wicked, Other Desert Cities, The Normal Heart) directs the musical that is being produced by Tony Award winner Jeffrey Seller (Rent, In the Heights) and Sting's longtime manager Kathryn Schenker.
Rehearsals are expected to begin in spring 2014 towards an out-of-town engagement June-July 2014. A Broadway arrival is expected in October of next year.
The musical has music and lyrics by Grammy winner Sting with a book by Tony and Pulitzer Prize winner Yorkey (Next to Normal, If/Then) and Tony winner Logan (Red, I'll Eat You Last).
Sting's upcoming album of the same title features music from the production. Sting is also set to perform a ten-concert engagement at the Public Theater this fall. Tickets and further information on the benefit concerts are available by clicking here.
