Kagan, Brown tip ‘Tuck’ for Boston

Children's tome adaptation enlists Shear, Nicholaw, Miller, Tysen

Broadway vets Howard Kagan (“The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess”) and Barry Brown (“La Cage aux Folles”) are teaming up with mega-production house Broadway Across America (“How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying,” “Memphis”) on new musical “Tuck Everlasting.” The producers announced a pre-Broadway run to commence at Boston’s Colonial Theater in June of next year.

Show will be based on the 1975 children’s novel of the same name, which also served as the basis for the eponymous 1981 and 2002 films. The story of Winnie, a girl who stumbles upon a family of immortals in the backwoods around her home, the original Natalie Babbit book has sold more than 2 million copies since its publication.

Pedigree for the show includes Rialto vets Claudia Shear (‘Dirty Blonde’) on book, and Casey Nicholaw (‘The Book of Mormon’) helming, while music and lyrics will come from Lucille Lortel Award nominees Chris Miller and Nathan Tysen.

No casting decisions were announced.
