'Ever After' On Broadway: Drew Barrymore Film Will Be A Musical

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK -- There will apparently be back-to-back Cinderella stories on Broadway in the coming seasons.

Producers announced Tuesday plans to bring a new musical based on the Drew Barrymore film "Ever After" in the 2013-14 season under the direction and choreography of Kathleen Marshall.

"Ever After" will feature music by Zina Goldrich and a book and lyrics by Marcy Heisle, who also are teaming up for "The Great American Mousical" at the Goodspeed Opera House.

The story is set in 16th century France, where a young noble woman learns to stand up to her scheming stepmother, befriends Leonardo Da Vinci and wins over a French prince.

It will follow a production of "Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella" on Broadway, which is slated for next season with an updated book by Douglas Carter Beane.
