Pasadena Playhouse postpones 'Sleepless in Seattle' musical
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.
