January 31 - March 19, 2017 EXTENDED! | Mandell Weiss Theatre
In Association with Cleveland Play House and Alley Theatre
Book By Bridget Carpenter | Music By Tom Kitt
Lyrics by Brian Yorkey | Based on the novel Freaky Friday by Mary Rodgers and the Disney films
Choreography by Sergio Trujillo | Directed by Christopher Ashley
The classic story of a mother and daughter who magically swap bodies for 24 chaotic hours has been given a contemporary spin with a hilarious new book by Bridget Carpenter (“Parenthood,” “Friday Night Lights”) and “a driving pop‐rock score” (DC Metro Theatre Arts) by Tony Award® and Pulitzer Prize winners Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey (Next to Normal, If/Then). With inventive staging by Playhouse Artistic Director Christopher Ashley and sharp choreography by Sergio Trujillo (Memphis, Jersey Boys), this dynamic production is “delightfully spunky” with “timeless appeal” (Variety).
