The stage musical adaptation of the 1989 film Diner, which has a score by Grammy winner Sheryl Crow, ends its extended run Jan. 3 at the Delaware Theatre Company in Wilmington, DE.
Diner has a book by the movie’s Academy Award-winning screenwriter and director Barry Levinson and an original score by nine-time Grammy Award winner Crow.
First announced for a 2012 Broadway arrival, Diner was postponed several times while the creative team continued to work on the show. It had its world premiere in 2014 at the Signature Theatre in Arlington, VA. The creative team remains hopeful that the production will ultimately make its way to New York, though no official plans have been announced. Warner Bros. Theatrical Ventures is overseeing the project.
"It's not like making a record and you make the record, the record's done, you do a little artwork, you do a little press, you go out on the road… The sequence is very logical,"
Crow recently told Playbill.com.
"That doesn't exist in the theatrical world. We did end up going out of town and honing the play... It's really hard to know what to expect. You're constantly going on the hope that you're going to get all the way to Broadway."
