Director named for 'Ever After'

July 29, 2005 at 8:18 PM   |   Comments

NEW YORK, July 29 (UPI) -- Tony Award winning director Doug Hughes is making his first foray into musical theater, bringing the movie "Ever After" to the Broadway stage.

The rights to the 1998 Drew Barrymore film were bought in December by producer Adam Epstein, Variety reports.

He says the musical will be: "Cinderella as not told by the Brothers Grimm -- no magic pumpkin, no talking mice, no fairy godmother. It tells a real-life story about a heroine who fights societal constraints against all odds."

Epstein and Hughes -- who won a Tony for "Doubt" -- invited a number of songwriting teams to submit material and decided on Zina Goldrich and Marcy Heisler, whose last project, "Girl Most Likely To," was never produced.
