The music of Diane Warren is coming to Broadway. Producer Dede Harris (Clybourne Park, War Horse) has optioned the prolific songwriter’s catalog to create an original Broadway stage musical. “It’s a thrill and an honor be able to present Diane Warren’s brilliant body of work on Broadway,” said Harris, in a statement. “Her songs are a pinnacle of popular culture and will bring fresh energy and excitement to the Great White Way.”

Warren has written more than 100 Top-10 hits for artists as varied as Elton John and Beyoncé. The Grammy winner and six-time Oscar-nominee once had seven different hits on the singles chart at the same time — each performed by a different artist. “I greatly admire the incredible shows and performers that have come from Broadway,” Warren said in a statement. “It has always been a thrill for me to write for musical artists who began their careers on the New York stage, and I’m so happy that my songs will be part of a new musical.”

Harris and her associate David Carpenter did not yet announce a timeline for when the show will open.
