Musical Adaptation Of Indecent Proposal To Premier This Spring

Demi Moore, Woody Harrelson, and Robert Redford in Indecent Proposal (1993)1993 was a very memorable year for me. First of all, I graduated from the American Musical and Dramatic Academy. Secondly, I moved into my first real New York City apartment. Then I got cast in my first show since moving here the year before. And last but not least, I said goodbye to one of my favorite shows of all time. Cheer's. Now I know what you're thinking. What does this have to do with today's blog?

Well as I am sure most of you know, one of the stars of Cheer's is none other than Emmy Award winner and Academy Award nominee Woody Harrelson, who then went on to play the male lead in Indecent Proposal alongside Demi Moore and Academy Award winner Robert Redford. Make sense now? At the time, this was a big departure for the actor as the character of Woody Boyd was there to provide comedic relief more than anything else.

Now thanks to this film, he was transformed into a romantic leading man. That's movie magic for you. Now here we are almost twenty-seven years later, and the blockbuster film is headed to the stage. Featuring music by Dylan Schlosberg, book and lyrics by Michael Conley, and directed by Charlotte Westenra, the show will begin previews at the Southwark Theatre in London, with opening night scheduled for June 5. Now while both the film and the musical take place in Atlantic City, the couples professions are different. In the film,Woody Harrelson and Demi Moore played high school sweethearts David and Diana Murphy, who are both struggling in their chose professions. She as a real estate broker, and him as an architect.

In the stage version, he is a struggling singer songwriter named Johnny who spends most nights playing singing backup for a local singer, while his wife Rebecca works part time at the casino. Now don't worry. While the characters career choices may have changed, they are still approached by a wealthy stranger who offers her a million dollars to sleep with him. Thank goodness they kept that in right? As of now, no on sale date has been announced. Be sure to check our website for further updates. Until next time theatre fans.
