6 Ways Your Inner Teenager Is Totally Freaking Out About The Upcoming 'Freaky Friday' Musical
You can just call me your fairy godmother because I'm about to make your day a whole lot more magical: Word on the street is that the beloved early 2000's classic (which was based on the 1976 classic of the same name), Freaky Friday, is about to be made into a musical... sort of. Yes, you heard me correctly, the version of the movie starring Jamie Lee Curtis and Lindsay Lohan is being brought back to life on the stage — that is the sound of all your dreams coming true. According to Playbill.com, there's going to be a developmental lab for the musical beginning at the tail end of March, which means the show is happening, and you've only got about a month and a half to prep yourself for the auditions.
Just when you thought you were as #blessed as one day would allow, it turns out that in addition to reviving the iconic movie and in essence, our adolescence, they've pulled out some other big guns. Reports reveal that the music for the play will certainly be in good hands, "Produced by Disney Theatrical Productions, the new musical features music by Tom Kitt and lyrics by Brian Yorkey, the Tony-winning composers of Next to Normal and If/Then, with a book by Bridget Carpenter. Christopher Ashley directs."
