Disney has released a preview of a song from the brand new “Freaky Friday: A New Musical,” which is currently playing at the La Jolla Playhouse in San Diego.
Hailed by The Washington Post as “a polished, peppy, modern fairy tale,” Disney’s new musical Freaky Friday is based on the celebrated novel by Mary Rodgers and two hit Disney films. The classic story of a mother and daughter who magically swap bodies for 24 chaotic hours has been given a contemporary spin with a hilarious new book by Bridget Carpenter (“Parenthood,” “Friday Night Lights”) and “a driving pop‐rock score” (DC Metro Theatre Arts) by Tony Award® and Pulitzer Prize winners Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey (Next to Normal, If/Then). With inventive staging by Playhouse Artistic Director Christopher Ashley and sharp choreography by Sergio Trujillo (Memphis, Jersey Boys), this dynamic production is “delightfully spunky” with “timeless appeal” (Variety).
D23 is holding a member night at the show in La Jolla on February 19. Tickets are still available and more information can be found on D23’s website here.
