CBS developing Brady Bunch, Cheers stage shows
The Brady Bunch and Cheers are taking the stage.
CBS Consumer Products announced this week new stage shows based on the two classics as well as the childhood favorite Corduroy.
The Brady Bunch will be hitting the stage through an agreement between CBS Consumer Products and Sherwood Schwartz’s family. The show is set to be a comedic musical that features the Brady’s in a brand new story, with the book written by Lloyd J. Schwartz and Hope Juber (often collaborators with their father, Sherwood Schwartz) and music and lyrics written by Wings guitarists Laurence Juber and Hope Juber. The family sitcom was on the airwaves from 1969 to 1974 and still has a life on TV through syndication.
Cheers Live On Stage, developed by Stageworks Media, will showcase classic moments from many of its scripted episodes. Cheers was ranked one of TV Guide’s “50 Greatest TV Shows of All Time,” and aired for eleven seasons from the early ’80s to the early ’90s. The live show adaptation will be touring in 2016.
These new shows join other live events from Consumer Products, including the ongoing tours of Star Trek: Live in Concert and Star Trek: The Ultimate Voyage.
