Little Miss Sunshine Musical to Premiere Next Year
Little Miss Sunshine
Little Miss Sunshine is headed to the stage for a musical adaptation set to debut next year.
Based on the 2006 film, which won two Academy Awards and earned more than $100 million at the box office worldwide, the musical version of Little Miss Sunshine will debut on Feb. 15, 2011, at the La Jolla Playhouse in La Jolla, Calif.
The musical comes from Tony winners James Lapine and William Finn, who worked together on 1992's Falsettos and 2005's The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. Lapine is also known for Into the Woods and more recently, Sondheim on Sondheim, which debuted earlier this year.
The La Jolla Playhouse has served as the launching pad for such Broadway productions as The Who's Tommy, Thoroughly Modern Millie and Jersey Boys.
