Sheryl Crow - Sheryl Crow To Write Music For Broadway Show

Sheryl Crow will compose the music and lyrics for new Broadway show 'Diner'.

The 'All I Wanna Do' hitmaker has announced plans to work on the musical adaptation of the 1982 movie with Academy Award winning screenwriter Barry Levinson, who wrote the original script and Tony Award-winning director-and-choreographer Kathleen Marshall.

She said: "I was already a huge fan of 'Diner' when Barry first approached me about writing a score for a theatrical re-telling of his film. I knew exactly who these men and women were and I feverishly began writing. Writing the score for 'Diner' has been the most challenging and fulfilling experience of my career. I have always been a devotee and student of musical theatre, and I am very excited to be making this journey with Barry and Kathleen."

The original film - starring Kevin Bacon, Ellen Barkin, Tim Daly, Steve Guttenberg, Paul Reiser and Mickey Rourke - followed six high school friends, who had reached their 20s, as they reunited before the wedding of one of their group.

The musical will arrive on Broadway next year.
