Chicago to hear ‘Noise’ in April

Whoopi Goldberg attached as a producer

Tuner “White Noise” has set dates for a Chicago run, with Whoopi Goldberg attached as one of the producers.

Show, currently skedded for an eight-week stint at Chi’s Royal George Theater beginning April 1, looks to be keeping an eye on its potential for a New York run with a team of producers that also includes Holly Way, Jay Strommen and Tom Leonardis.

Goldberg’s Broadway credits as a producer include “Thoroughly Modern Millie” and the incoming musical version of “Sister Act.”

Sergio Trujillo, choreographer of musicals including “Jersey Boys” and “Memphis,” helms and choreographs the tuner, which has a book by Matte O’Brien and music and lyrics by Robert Morris, Steven Morris and Joe Shane.

Originally conceived by Ryan J. Davis with a story by Joe Drymala, plot follows a pair of white-supremacist musicians who are marketed to the mainstream by a New York producer.

The show was initially seen in an earlier incarnation as part of the 2006 New York Musical Theater Festival and has since played a 2009 engagement at Le Petit Theatre du Vieux Carre in New Orleans.
