The musical version of your mother’s favorite weepy Meryl Streep movie (and also the best-selling book by Robert James Waller) will begin previews January 13 and open sometime in February 2014. Bartlett Sher (South Pacific) will direct; the book is by Marsha Norman, with lyrics by Jason Robert Brown. While we’re on the subject of musicals based on tearjerker novels that your mom loved: Whatever happened to The Notebook musical? We demand a Notebook musical.
