The musical adaptation of The Notebook will make its anticipated premiere on Broadway this coming spring. Previews will begin at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre February 10, 2024 ahead of a March 14 opening night.
Based on the best-selling Nicholas Sparks novel, the new musical features music and lyrics by singer-songwriter Ingrid Michaelson, with a book by playwright Bekah Brunstetter. The production first made its critically acclaimed world premiere at Chicago Shakespeare Theater last fall. See what the critics had to say here.
The musical follows Allie and Noah, who share a lifetime of love despite the forces that threaten to pull them apart. The core creative team members from the Chicago Shakespeare Theater run will return for the Broadway production—with direction by Michael Greif (Dear Evan Hansen, Rent) and Schele Williams (Aida, Motown the Musical), and choreography by Katie Spelman.
Casting for the Broadway bow will be announced at a later date.
The production will feature scenic design by David Zinn and Brett J. Banakis, costume design by Paloma Young, lighting design by Ben Stanton, sound design by Nevin Steinberg, and hair and wig design by Mia Neal. The production’s music supervisor will be Carmel Dean, who also collaborated on arrangements with Ingrid Michaelson and on orchestrations with John Clancy. Geoffrey Ko will serve as music director. Casting is by The Telsey Office, Patrick Goodwin, CSA.
The Notebook was previously adapted into a hit film in 2004, and it made stars of its leads Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams.
