Sheryl Crow’s ‘Diner’ Musical Will Open for Business At Last

Sheryl Crow’s musical adaptation of “Diner” will finally have it world premiere at the Signature Theater in Arlington, Va., following a long period of development that saw a pre-Broadway commercial run delayed and then nixed as the title was retooled.

With a book by Barry Levinson, the writer and director of the 1983 pic on which it’s based, “Diner” will be helmed and choreographed by Kathleen Marshall. Crow writes the music and lyrics in her first theatrical writing gig, set to bow in a Signature production that runs Dec. 9-Jan. 25.

Also on the Signature’s 25th anniversary slate is “Kid Victory,” a world preem from John Kander (“Cabaret,” “Chicago”) and Greg Pierce, with whom Kander penned Off Broadway musical “The Landing.” Storyline follows a 17-year-old who returns home after a mysterious disappearance.

Additional titles on tap include “Soon,” a new tuner by Nick Blaemire (“Glory Days”), as well as productions of “Sunday in the Park with George,” “Cabaret” and “Elmer Gantry,” among other offerings.
