Diner, which was originally envisioned to play a large Broadway musical house, is being retooled to fit a more intimate Broadway venue. Alternative dates for a San Francisco run in early 2013 are being investigated.
Based on the critically acclaimed 1982 film, Diner is set in Baltimore, 1959, when six high school friends reunite at the one place they know they'll always belong: the Diner. Now in their twenties, the friends have stumbled into adulthood and struggle to keep from growing apart.
Kathleen Marshall is directing and choreographing the production, which will feature scenic design by Derek McLane, lighting design by Peter Kaczorowski, sound design by Scott Lehrer, and orchestrations and music direction by Mitchell Froom.
