New Musical Flying Over Sunset To Open On Broadway Next Spring

Quick question. What does Clare Booth Luce, Aldous Huxley, and Cary Grant all have in common? Give up? Well, if you guessed that they are all featured characters in the new LSD influenced musical Flying Over Sunset, then you would be right.

The new musical, which features music by Tony Award winner Tom Kitt (Next To Normal), lyrics by Tony Award nominee Michael Korie (Grey Gardens), and book and direction by Tony Award winner James Lapine (Falsettos), is set to begin previews at the Vivian Beaumont Theatre on March 12, 2020, with opening night scheduled for April 16.

By the way, this will be the first original musical to play at that theatre since Contact in 2000, which went on to win the Tony Award for Best Musical of the Year. Will lighting strike twice? We shall see. Now in case you are wondering who has been cast to play these three eccentric famous folks, you don't have to wonder any longer.

Playing the roles of playwright and diplomat Clare Booth Luce, writer Aldous Huxley, and Hollywood leading man Cary Grant, are a trio of Tony Award nominees in the form of Carmen Cusack (Bright Star), Harry Hadden-Paton (My Fair Lady), and Tony Yazbek (On The Town). Quite the cast don't you think? An on sale date for tickets has yet to be announced. Be sure to check this website for future updates. Get your tickets to see Flying Over Sunset on Broadway at the Vivian Beaumont Theatre. Until next time theatre fans.
