Gee, baby, ain’t they good to us? The national tour of the musical comedy Bullets Over Broadway, written by Woody Allen and based on the screenplay by Allen and Douglas McGrath, will launch in Cleveland, OH on October 6, 2015. The tour plans to visit over 25 cities in North America. Casting and official dates will be announced shortly.
Bullets Over Broadway tells the story of an aspiring playwright in 1920s New York who is forced to cast a mobster’s talentless girlfriend in his new show in order to have it produced on the Great White Way. The tuner features existing hits from the 1920s, including “Let’s Misbehave,” “Tain’t Nobody’s Biz-ness If I Do” and “There’s a New Day Comin’!”
Following his work on the Broadway production of Bullets Over Broadway, originally directed and choreographed by five-time Tony Award winner Susan Stroman, the tour is helmed by director Jeff Whiting. The creative team also includes scenic design by Jason Ardizzone-West, lighting design by Carolyn Wong and sound design by Shannon Slaton. The tour features six-time Tony Award winner William Ivey Long's original Broadway costumes.
The original production of Bullets Over Broadway premiered on the Great White Way last season at the St. James Theatre with performances beginning on March 11, 2014 and an official opening on April 10, 2014. The production received six Tony-Award nominations, including Best Book of a Musical and Best Choreography.
