Elephant Eye sets sights on ‘Beauty’

Org gears up next Broadway offering

Elephant Eye Theatrical is gearing up for its next Broadway offering, with new tuner “Beauty” aiming to hit Gotham during the 2011-12 season.

In her first legit outing, singer-songwriter Regina Spektor (whose second album “Far” dropped earlier this year) composes the music while Michael Korie (“Grey Gardens”) provides the lyrics. Tina Landau, currently repped on Broadway with her staging of Tracy Letts play “Superior Donuts,” writes the book and helms the show based on her 2002 play, a time-traveling retelling of “Sleeping Beauty” with a contempo spin.

Landau also wrote the book and helmed the 1996 tuner “Floyd Collins.”

Elephant Eye — the legit production company topped by Stuart Oken, Michael Leavitt and Five Cent Prods. — is currently heading into production on “The Addams Family,” bowing late this year in Chicago before arriving on Broadway this spring. Among the other projects in Elephant Eye’s stable is “Bruce Lee: Journey to the West,” with book writer David Henry Hwang, songwriter David Yazbek and helmer Bartlett Sher attached.

Timeline for “Beauty” includes an out-of-town tryout at a city to be announced ahead of the planned Broadway run.
