Loretta Lynn Hits Broadway

Post by jimmya » Fri May 11, 2012 7:27 am

This is great news!!


Country legend LORETTA LYNN had announced plans for a BROADWAY musical adaption of her life story “Coal Miner’s Daughter.” LYNN made the announcement on GRAND OLE OPRY at the RYMAN AUDITORIUM in DOWNTOWN NASHVILLE last night (4/10). She also brought out the production’s future lead, actress/musician ZOOEY DESCHANEL, to perform “Coal Miner’s Daughter” with her onstage.

“This is a great honor for me,” ZOOEY said. “This is my hero.”

THE TENNESSEAN reports that plans for a stage adaptation are still in the beginning stages, with no creative team attached or workshop dates announced. The producers will be FOX THEATRICALS and SCOTT SANDERS PRODUCTIONS.

I'm pretty excited about this. At first it seems a bit odd about the pairing- but the more I think about it, the more it makes sense! I can't wait.
