Watch Shoshana Bean and Whitney Bashor in Rehearsal for Broadway-Bound Beaches

The musical begins performances at the Drury Lane Theatre in Chicago.

Shoshana Bean (Wicked) and Whitney Bashor (The Bridges of Madison County) begin their run in the Broadway-bound Beaches musical tonight at Chicago's Drury Lane Theatre.

Running through August 16, Bean and Bashor take on the roles of Cee Cee Bloom and Bertie, whose friendship from childhood to adulthood is charted over the course of the show. Directed by Eric Shaeffer, the musical is inspired by Iris Rainer Dart's novel (and its subsequent 1988 film adaptation) and features music by David Austin, lyrics by Dart, and a book by Dart and Thom Thomas.

Take a look at the pair in rehearsal as they build a brand-new musical from the ground up.
