Regina Spektor to pen Broadway musical

'Sleeping Beauty'-inspired show planned for 2011

NEW YORK -- Regina Spektor has set her sights on Broadway -- writing the music for a show inspired by "Sleeping Beauty."

Elephant Eye Theatricals says the singer-songwriter will collaborate on "Beauty," a contemporary retelling of the Grimm fairy tale. It's tentatively planned for the 2011-2012 Broadway season after an out-of-town tryout.

"Beauty" will feature book and direction by Tina Landau and lyrics by Michael Korie.

Among Spektor's best-selling albums are "Begin to Hope" and the recently released "far."
