Nashville-based artist development firm and record label Melody Place is joining forces with renowned producer, composer and songwriter David Foster to co-produce the Broadway-bound stage production, BOOP! The Betty Boop Musical.
Melody Place will also release the cast album of the new musical, which will premiere at Chicago’s CIBC theatre for a limited five-week engagement, now through Dec. 24, with the premiere on Dec. 6.
Tony-winning director/choreographer Jerry Mitchell (Kinky Boots, Pretty Woman: The Musical, Hairspray) brings the Queen of the Animated Screen to the theater in BOOP! The Betty Boop Musical, with Grammy-winning composer Foster (“I Have Nothing,” “After The Love Is Gone,” “The Prayer”), Tony-nominated lyricist Susan Birkenhead (Working, Jelly’s Last Jam) and Tony-winning book writer Bob Martin (The Drowsy Chaperone, The Prom).
“Getting to be a part of something as international and culturally significant as this show is a perfect scenario for Melody Place” says Sanborn McGraw, Melody Place President / General Manager. “Betty Boop is a beloved icon around the world and with David Foster leading the charge, alongside some of the most respected and talented Broadway creatives of all time, we’re working with a dream team.”
Melody Place also represents artists Sara Evans, Jackie Evancho and Makena Hartlin. The move marks a moment of expansion for the company.
