‘Dog Day Afternoon’ Headed to Broadway

Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures, which is currently repped on Broadway by “Misery” and “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time,” is developing a stage version of “Dog Day Afternoon” next for the Great White Way.

Stephen Adly Guirgis is down to write the play, based on the Sidney Lumet-directed 1975 pic starring Al Pacino that drew a slew of Oscar noms and won the screenplay award for Frank Pierson.

“Misery” was the top-grossing play on Broadway in the week of Jan. 3, while “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” was the second-highest grossing play for that week.

In London, WB Theatre Ventures has the musical version of Roald Dahl’s “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” playing in the West End.

No date has been set for “Dog Day Afternoon’s” bow on Broadway yet.

Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures is the company’s live-stage play division, which develops and produces musicals and other stage productions. 

Guirgis is a member and former co-artistic director of LAByrinth Theater Company. His most recent play, “Between Riverside and Crazy,” won the 2015 Pulitzer Prize.
