Five-time Tony Award winner Susan Stroman will direct and choreograph the previously reported world premiere production of Bullets Over Broadway, the new musical adaptation of Woody Allen's and Douglas McGrath's screenplay of the 1994 crime-comedy film. The show plans to arrive on Broadway in the 2013 - 2014 season.

Allen is penning the adaptation, which will feature existing music of the period from the great American songbook. Additional creative team, dates, theater and casting will be announced shortly.

Bullets Over Broadway tells the story of an aspiring young playwright newly arrived on Broadway in 1920's New York who is forced to cast a mobster's talentless girlfriend in his latest drama in order to get it produced.

Stroman won Tony Awards for her direction and choreography of The Producers and for her choreography of Contact, Show Boat, and Crazy for You. Among her other credits are Oklahoma!, Young Frankenstein, The Music Man, Steel Pier, and The Scottsboro Boys. She has also been announced to co-direct and choreograph the new musical revue Prince of Broadway, which as previously reported, is aiming for a Fall 2013 premiere.
