The world premiere of Forever Dusty, a new musical about the life and times of legendary icon Dusty Springfield, by Kirsten Holly Smith and Jonathan Vankin, begins performances today, November 11, 2012 at New World Stages (340 West 50th Street), with an official Opening Night set for Sunday, November 18, 2012. BroadwayWorld recently got a sneak peek at the show and brings you a first look at Smith as 'Dusty Springfield', Christina Sajousas 'Claire' and more in the photos below!

Along with Smith and Sajous, Forever Dusty will feature Coleen Sexton (Jekyll and Hyde, Wicked National Tour), Benim Foster (Barefoot in the Park, Twelve Angry Men), Sean Patrick Hopkins (Forever Plaid, Angels in America), Ashley Betton (Peep Show, Midsummer Night's Dream) and Jonathan C. Kaplan (Falsettos, Diary of Anne Frank).

The additional creative team includes Wilson Chin (Set Design), Richard DiBella (Lighting Design), Matt Kraus (Sound Design), Michael Thomas Murray (Musical Direction), and Nancy Palmatier (Costume Design).

With her towering blonde beehive, spectacular outfits, and most of all, her unforgettable, soulful voice, Dusty Springfield became the first great female pop star of the 1960s. But how did a shy, awkward Catholic schoolgirl with the cumbersome name of Mary Isobel Catherine Bernadette O'Brien, transform herself into an icon for a generation?

Forever Dusty tells the compelling and moving story of Dusty's journey, in a dramatic, high-energy musical filled with some of the most exciting pop songs ever written, including "Son of a Preacher Man," "You Don't Have to Say You Love Me," "The Look of Love," and many others.

Forever Dusty will be produced by Jorja Fox, Leslie Brockett, Jane Gullong, and Sandalphon Productions, with executive producer Eva Price of Maximum Entertainment Productions.
