It has been announced that the musical Brooklyn will open in October at the Plymouth Theatre and will star Eden Espinosa, who is currently standing by for Idina Menzel in Wicked.

Written by Mark Schoenfeld and Barri McPherson, Brooklyn will feature direction and musical staging by Jeff Calhoun and music supervision by John McDaniel. Previews are scheduled to begin on Thursday, September 23 in advance of an October 21 opening. The rest of the cast and the design team will be announced shortly.

Brooklyn tells the story of a band of street singers who, through a mixture of pop and soul music, tell a sidewalk fairy tale about a young girl from Paris whose search for the father she never knew lands her in Brooklyn, New York. The musical had its world premiere engagement at the New Denver Civic Theatre in May 2003.
