The new musical Honeymoon in Vegas will open on Broadway in spring 2013 following a premiere engagement in Toronto in November.

Based on the Castle Rock Entertainment Motion Picture of the same title, Honeymoon in Vegas features music and lyrics by Tony Award winner Jason Robert Brown (Parade, 13) and a book by Andrew Bergman (director and screenwriter of the film). Gary Griffin (The Color Purple) will direct with choreography by Denis Jones.

Honeymoon in Vegas, according to press notes, tells the story of "Jack Singer, a regular guy with an extreme fear of marriage. When his girlfriend Betsy puts the pressure on, Jack finally pops the question and they head to Sin City for a whirlwind wedding weekend. But when Vegas wise guy Tommy Korman catches a glimpse of the stunning bride-to-be, and notices her uncanny resemblance to his late wife, he does everything possible to break up the romance and get his own second chance at love."

Tony Danza will star as Tommy Korman. Additional casting and creative team will be confirmed shortly.

Honeymoon in Vegas will be produced by Dena Hammerstein, Roy Gabay, Dan Farah and Katie Face Productions.



Released in 1992, the movie "Honeymoon in Vegas" starred James Caan, Nicolas Cage and Sarah Jessica Parker, and was written and directed by Andrew Bergman.
