Woodstock musical in the works
Michael Lang readying project for 2010 seasonNEW YORK -- First it was an iconic concert, then an acclaimed documentary. It was followed by countless books and recordings, not to mention a recent film by Ang Lee. Next, it'll be a Broadway musical.
The concert's producer and his business partner said Thursday that a new musical celebrating Woodstock is in the works for the 2010-2011 theater season.
It is based on Michael Lang's bestselling book, "The Road to Woodstock." Lang co-founded and produced the 1969 concert.
Lang and partner Sam Nappi say there's no title yet, and the show's creative team is being assembled. It will feature new music as well as songs performed at the concert.
