Did you love the 1988 movie Beaches starring Bette Midler??
Of course you did! (Even if you cried)
How's about the novel it was based on?
Of course! (Even if you cried)
Well the new news is that the author of that novel, Iris Rainer Dart, has recently written a Broadway debut musical, and the next musical on her list after that trial run is to bring Beaches to the stage!
She'll be co-writing the libretto with Thom Thomas (fab name) and the music with David Aaron Austin, with Leonard Foglia attached to direct!
Sounds ab-so-lutely great to us! Beaches is one of our favorites!
Let us know when it's done, casted, and when we can buy tickets!!
