Millepied withdraws from ‘Hard Body’

Trujillo replaces 'Black Swan' choreographer on tuner

Choreographer Benjamin Millepied has withdrawn from the incoming Broadway tuner “Hands on a Hard Body,” to be replaced by Sergio Trujillo.

“Black Swan” choreographer Millepied provided the dance moves for the new musical’s world preem at the La Jolla Playhouse in the spring, but now must step away from the project due to other dance-world commitments, according to reps for the show.

Trujillo has choreographed Broadway titles “Jersey Boys” and “Memphis,” among others. He joins a creative team that includes helmer Neil Pepe as well as book writer Doug Wright, composer Trey Anastasio and composer-lyricist Amanda Green.

Exact Broadway dates and theater have yet to be announced for the show, which is produced by a team led by Broadway Across America (John Gore, Thomas B. McGrath, Beth Williams). Cast also has yet to be set, although the La Jolla production had a cast that included Keith Carradine, Hunter Foster and Keala Settle.
