Kander & Ebb’s New York, New York Coming to Broadway, Lyrics by Miranda

New York, New York is heading to New York! Loosely based on the Martin Scorsese film of the same name, New York, New York will feature a score written by John Kander and Fred Ebb, with additional lyrics written by Lin-Manuel Miranda for new songs by John Kander.

Susan Stroman, whose most recent Broadway venture POTUS premiered this year, will direct the new musical. Deadline reports that the show, with a book written by David Thompson, will begin performances in March 2023 at a Broadway theatre to be announced.

Lin-Manuel Miranda took to Twitter to comment on the news. “This is a KANDER AND EBB MUSICAL. Even better, a NEW KANDER AND EBB MUSICAL directed by STROMAN! I was thrilled to pitch in lyrics for a couple of new tunes because writing [with] John is one of the all time joys of my life. Can’t wait to see it!”

Additional creative team members include Sam Davis (music supervision, arrangements, and orchestrations). Daryl Waters (orchestrations), David Loud (vocal arrangements), and Alvin Hough Jr. (music direction).

Stay tuned for more details on the exciting new musical!
