ACT to Debut ‘Tales of the City’

Whitty The American Conservatory Theater of the San Francisco Bay Area will premiere an adaptation of Armistead Maupin’s stories as a musical for its 2010-11 seasons, according to San Francisco Chronicle. The musical was created in partnership with “Avenue Q” librettist Jeff Whitty and director Jason Moore, as well as songwriters Jake Shear and John Garden of the rock band the Scissor Sisters. Producers have their sights set on eventually taking the show to Broadway. "Clearly it's an extraordinary team, and it would be surprising if it didn't have a longer life,” ACT artistic director Carey Perloff told the Chronicle.
