It was announced today that Alan Menken will compose the music for two new theatrical shows in development!
HAPPY TRAILS is a tuner based on the life and career of Roy Rogers and his wife Dale Evans. Also on the creative team is lyricist Glenn Slater, book by Marshall Brickman and direction by Des McAnuff.
Mr. Menken is also developing a musical based on the 1993 classic MRS. DOUBTFIRE which starred Robin Williams , co-starred Sally Fields and Harvey Fierstein and was directed by Chris Columbus. David Zippel is on board for the lyrics and Harvey Fierstein will write the book.
Huge fan of Alan Menken’s songs and scores. Looking forward to these projects!
