“We’re excited to bring this musical to Broadway and have a full and wonderful cast join us in the celebration,” said James L. Brooks, chairman of the New England Philharmonics and head of production for the National Arts Center.
“The musical will bring the spirit of love, laughter, and joy to Broadway, and our great American theater community will benefit.”
The Broadway production is being presented by the American Shakespeare Theater Company and the National Association of Theatre Companies.
It will open on March 17.
The original Broadway musicals that were staged in the 1950s and 1960s included the musical “Love Is Blind,” which was directed by Marni T. Lewis, “Sweeney Todd,” starring Jane Seymour, “Wicked” starring Anthony Perkins, “The Sound of Music” starring Tony Bennett and James Stewart, and “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder” starring Edward Albee.
“Love is Blind” won an Oscar for Best Musical for the film adaptation and won four Grammy Awards for Best Original Song and Best Original Score.
“Singing the blues and being able to write a song that captures the essence of the moment, is what this show is about,” said Michael D. Sullivan, who was nominated for the Tony Award for Best Actor for “Love.”
“I have always loved the blues, but never before in my life have I felt the joy of singing about my dog.”
