The Broadway musical adaptation of Richard Matheson’s Somewhere in Time has been announced!
“The developing tuner version of “Somewhere in Time” has set its creative team, with original novelist-screenwriter Richard Matheson co-writing the book and Leslie Arden on board to pen songs.
Producer Ken Davenport will co-write the book with Matheson. Stafford Arima, who helmed the Off Broadway longrunner “Altar Boyz” (of which Davenport also is a producer), directs.
It’ll be the first tuner for Matheson, whose books have yielded a slew of movie titles including “I Am Legend,” “Duel,” “Hell House,” “Stir of Echoes” and 1975 novel “Bid Time Return,” the time-traveling romance filmed in 1980 under the title “Somewhere in Time” (for which Matheson wrote the screenplay). His TV credits include several well-known episodes of the original run of “The Twilight Zone.””
