Post FAMILY FORTUNE: a new original musical
Playbill has news of Family Fortune, a new original musical, that is hoping to head to Broadway:

Andrew Gans wrote:
The new musical features music by Alberto Carrion and Nile Rodgers; the latter is also producer of the score. Fox's wife, Cinda Firestone Fox, penned the book. The musical, according to the industry paper, is loosely based on Cinda Firestone Fox's "experiences as a member of the clan that began Firestone Tire and Rubber. Story has been reset in Puerto Rico, where a salsa dancer marries a wealthy man and becomes embroiled in a battle over his family's assets."

Certainly this is good news for those who are tired of musicals based on movies. ;) Whether it will be any good is another matter. I'm not certain I'm convinced that the concept sounds promising. And of course, this is only something that's in the pipeline for two years time.
