BRADY BUNCH Musical to Receive Staged Reading

BRADY BUNCH Musical to Receive Staged Reading

A Very Brady Musical, a new musical based on the iconic television show The Brady Bunch, will receive a New York City staged reading under the direction of Richard Israel - the multiple Ovation Award winner for his legendary work in Los Angeles theatre. Israel's also helming the NY-developed Jeff Marx/Fat Mike musical, Home Street Home, set to open in London this spring.

Lloyd J. Schwartz, one of the TV show's original producers, and Hope Juber have written the book - a clever blend of nostalgia and satire, with all of the characters played by adults. Schwartz and Juber are the writers behind the more recent Brady movies for television. Music & Lyrics are by Hope Juber & Grammy Award winner Laurence Juber (Paul McCartney and Wings). Ted Arthur (The Prom, Once On This Island, Dear Evan Hanson) is Music Director.

The musical is being produced by Kate Atkinson of K-Squared Entertainment and developed by K-Squared Entertainment and Juber Productions. K-Squared is the team behind Part of the Plan, the Dan Fogelberg musical that had its world premiere at the Tennessee Performing Center and is slated to continue development at a soon-to-be announced Regional theater in the 2019/20 season.

The 29-hour reading will take place February 15 at Pearl Studios.

Can Broadway Rebound in 2023? Photo
It’s no secret that Broadway has not rebounded to pre-pandemic levels. The Thanksgiving week box office gross was $37,475,773, compared to $41,687,333 for Thanksgiving week 2019. (While fewer shows were playing, capacity was also down, as was average ticket price.) The list of reasons for this is long: tourism is not fully back, we have a strong dollar, Covid is still keeping many traditional theatergoers away, at-home entertainment is booming, crime is constantly in the news, etcetera.
