Musical of ‘The Fortress of Solitude’ heads to NYC
Question of the Day
NEW YORK (AP) - A musical based on Jonathan Lethem’s celebrated 2003 novel “The Fortress of Solitude” is heading toward New York.
The Public Theater said Monday that it will co-produce the show and bring it to its downtown home for the 2014-15 season after it debuts at the Dallas Theater Center in March.
The musical has a book by Itamar Moses and music and lyrics by Michael Friedman, who also wrote songs for “Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson.” The new musical is conceived and directed by Daniel Aukin.
Lethem’s novel tells the story of two boys, one white, one black, both raised by single fathers in 1970s Brooklyn and both of whom become endowed with superpowers.
