You’re going to have to wait quite a few more sleepless nights before you can see Sleepless in Seattle — The Musical. Producers announced today that the world premiere of the show — adapted for the stage from the 1993 romantic comedy starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan — will now be opening during the 2012-2013 season rather than the 2011-2012 season. According to producer David Shor in a press release, “Developing a new musical is very intricate, and developing a show based on a movie as iconic as Sleepless in Seattle is something we don’t take lightly … I feel that it is essential not to rush this progression so that the show that is ultimately seen on stage is something we all can be proud of. I look forward to having the show be part of The Pasadena Playhouse’s 2012-2013 season.”
The Pasadena Playhouse is located in Pasadena, Calf. Sleepless in Seattle — The Musical was announced back in 2009.
