Tina Landau to direct the musical

The long-brewing “Clueless” tuner will take another developmental step later this summer, with the musical version of the 1995 Paramount comedy set to get a reading in August.

Tina Landau (“Superior Donuts”) will helm the musical, which has a score by Stephen Trask (“Hedwig and the Angry Inch”) and Peter Yanowitz (of the band the Wallflowers). Book is by John Dempsey (“The Witches of Eastwick,” “Saved”).

Barry and Fran Weissler (“Chicago”) produce the project.

With rehearsals, the developmental event is set to run Aug. 11-18 in Gotham.
