Freak Friday Musical
Some people may remember when Freaky Friday came out, and kids would joke about trading places with their parents. For those nostalgic of that time, the Arlington company has agreed with Disney to produce a Freaky Friday musical. The music will be produced by the same team responsible for “Next to Normal”, a dark but popular musical that theatre kids will appreciate. In a deal that rockets Signature Theatre into a whole new producing orbit, the Arlington company will team up this fall with the Walt Disney Co. to present a world-premiere musical version of “Freaky Friday,” with a score by the Pulitzer Prize-winning team behind “Next to Normal.” WashingtonPost reports that “Freaky Friday” will be directed by Christopher Ashley, and choreographed by Sergio Trujillo. The show will open Oct. 4 to Nov. 13, with tickets becoming available this July.
