The musical based on the 1993 movie “Sleepless in Seattle” scheduled to open June 12 at the Pasadena Playhouse has been postponed until the theater's next season.

The new musical features a book by Jeff Arch, who wrote the original story and co-wrote the screenplay for the romantic comedy directed by Nora Ephron. The songs are by Michelle Citrin, Michael Garin and Josh Nelson. No casting for the musical had been announced.

A statement from artistic director Sheldon Epps said that “our desire to ‘get it right’ led us to the wise decision to give this project additional time for further creative development.”

A replacement for the musical in the Playhouse schedule is still to be announced.

A new opening date for" Sleepless in Seattle" was not announced. The Playhouse's next season begins in September.
