Steve Jobs and Bill Gates Tuner ‘Nerds’ Set for Broadway

Producers Carl Levin, Vicki Halmos, Elizabeth Williams and Greenleaf Prods. have announced a musical comedy chronicling the rivalry between Bill Gates and Steve Jobs called “Nerds” to open this spring at NYC’s Longacre Theater.

Dubbed “a musical dot-comedy,” “Nerds” will follow the two tech inventors through their careers and the competition that arose between them.

“We’re thrilled to add a jolt of comedy to this already astounding theater season, with this hilarious tale of the Founding Fathers of Tech, from a creative team stacked with new voices,” said Levin (“Rock of Ages”). “While fine-tuning and re-coding the show for this exciting launch, we’ve also been exploring innovative ways to enhance the ‘user experience’ inside the theater, for a uniquely entertaining event – compatible for Broadway audiences of all generations.”

The new technology that will accompany the performance of “Nerds” include: on-stage holograms, projection mapping and the ability to use apps to interact with the set and other audience members as well as choosing how the show will end.

The musical features book and lyrics by Jordan Allen-Dutton and Erik Weiner, with music by Hal Goldberg and direction by Casey Hushion. Choreography is by Josh Bergasse. The cast has yet to be announced.

“Nerds” opens April 21 at the Longacre following previews starting March 31.
