"I've thought Silver Linings Playbook would make a perfect musical since it was first released," Stern shared. "I am thrilled to now be moving ahead with wonderful creative writers to open this show on Broadway."

In the film, after spending four years in a psychiatric hospital, Pat Solitano Jr., (Cooper) a former teacher, moves back in with his mother and tries to reconcile with his ex-wife. He meets a young widow, Tiffany Maxwell (Lawrence), who offers to help him get his wife back if he enters a dance competition with her. As they train, the two become close and develop a friendship as they examine their relationships with themselves and those around them.
