David Hyde Pierce to Direct Broadway Musical Starring Tyne Daly

“It Shoulda Been You,” a new musical comedy directed by Tony winning actor (and “Frasier” alum) David Hyde Pierce, has lined up a Broadway run this spring with a cast led by Tyne Daly and Harriet Harris.

Pierce, making his Broadway debut as a helmer, will direct a cast that includes Daly (most recently on Broadway in last season’s “Mothers and Sons”) and Harris (“Cinderella”) as well as Sierra Boggess (“The Little Mermaid”), David Burtka, Lisa Howard, Edward Hibbert and Steve Rosen. Daly, Harris, Hibbert and Howard all appeared in the musical’s 2011 world premiere, also helmed by Pierce, at New Jersey’s George Street Playhouse.

With book and lyrics by Brian Hargrove and music by Barbara Anselmi, “It Should Been You” centers on two clashing clans brought together by a wedding that turns tumultuous.

Produced by Daryl Roth, Scott Landis, Jane Bergere, Jayne Baron Sherman and John O’Boyle, the musical starts previews March 17 ahead of an April 14 opening at the Brooks Atkinson Theater. The current occupant of the Brooks Atkinson, “Love Letters,” is scheduled to run through Feb. 15.
