I can't tell you how excited I am to see this show. That's right. I am a huge Woody Allan fan. Have been since I played Humphrey Bogart in my high school production of "Play It Again Sam". Bullets Over Broadway which will feature a book by Woody Allan and popular tunes from the 1920's is set to begin previews at the St. James Theatre on March 11,2014.
The show which is based on the hit 1994 movie is being directed by five-time Tony Award winner Susan Stroman. It was also just announced that starring in the lead role is Zach Braff (Scrubs, Garden State). Kind of makes you want to see it even more now doesn't it? Now for those of you who are not familiar with the film I have included a description of it from the show's official website. Enjoy!
A playwright who needs someone to back his next show.
A mobster who needs some way to please his showgirl girlfriend.
This could be the start of a beautiful friendship—
or a brand new musical comedy!Based on the screenplay of the acclaimed film, BULLETS OVER BROADWAY brings the talents of Woody Allen and Susan Stroman together for the first time next spring at the St. James Theatre.
Loaded with big laughs, colorful characters, and the songs that made the 20’s roar, BULLETS OVER BROADWAY is ready to bring musical comedy back with a bang.
Now if that doesn't get you excited then I don't know what will. Tickets for the show will go on sale in the next few months so check back here when they do. Get your tickets to see Bullets Over Broadway at the St. James Theatre. I can't wait. Until next time theatre fans.
