After years of rumors and speculation about Clueless: The Musical, ET can confirm it’s finally happening!
Twenty years after Clueless first hit theaters, director Amy Hecklering revealed new details about the highly anticipated Broadway adaptation. “I’ve written the, what they call the book and it’s a jukebox musical,” she told ET.
Heckerling also confirmed that Kristin Hanggi -- best known for directing Rock of Ages, which ran on Broadway from 2009 to 2015 -- is set to direct and Dodger Theatricals is producing. They’re the same production group responsible for Jersey Boys, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, and the original Broadway run of Into the Woods.
While we’re totally bugging about what music is in store (a reprisal of Coolio’s “Rollin’ With My Homies,” perhaps?), Heckerling didn’t offer any details on potential songs.
Perhaps the biggest hurdle will be finding people to step in for Alicia Silverstone, Brittany Murphy, and Paul Rudd. “Well casting -- that's like going to be like the main problem,” Heckerling admitted.
That’s OK, because we’re pretty sure we can come up with a list of stars that are the perfect Cher.
