New York, NY) – Pal Joey, the Rodgers and Hart-John O’Hara classic musical, has been revised in a brand-new production that will be heading to Broadway in the 2022-2023 season.

The creative team for this reimagined Pal Joey includes Richard LaGravenese (new book), co-directors Tony Goldwyn and Savion Glover, choreographer Savion Glover, set designer Derek McLane, costume designer Emilio Sosa, lighting designer Natasha Katz and orchestrator/arranger/music supervisor Daryl Waters.

Adapting O’Hara’s book so that the primary setting of the plot is a South Side Chicago nightclub in the 1940’s and changing the character of Linda from a stenographer/clerk to an aspiring singer, has enabled the creative team, with the permission of the Rodgers and Hart estate, to interpolate some of that team’s greatest songs into an already memorable score.

Additions to the score already highlighted by “Bewitched, Bothered, Bewildered” and “I Could Write a Book” include “Where or When”, “The Lady is a Tramp”, “It Never Entered My Mind”, “My Heart Stood Still”, “Falling in Love With Love” and “There’s A Small Hotel” among others.

The producing team is led by Jeffrey Richards and co-produced by Funny World Productions, Willette Klausner and Irene Gandy.
