Once Susan Stroman gets The Scottsboro Boys up and struttin' March 10 at The Vineyard, her next theatrical move will be toward pirouettes and pas de deux.

"We don't have a title for it yet," admitted Stephen Flaherty, who's composing the songs for the project with his lifelong lyricist, Lynn Ahrens, "but it's set in the world of ballet so it's a big dance show. We're doing a little reading some time in June."

They do have a book writer: Peter Parnell (The Cider House Rules).

Flaherty just returned from London's West End where his and Ahrens' show, A Man of No Importance, is currently enjoying a limited run at the Arts Theatre Leicester Square, with Olivier Award winner Paul Clarkson in the title role of Alfie Byrne.
