Top Chef, the Musical is totally not happening, but food and theater will indeed meet when a musical adaptation of Diner, Barry Levinson’s legendary film about pals shooting the shit at a restaurant, comes to Broadway next fall. With Sheryl Crow behind music and lyrics, the show is sure to be a recipe of all scrumptious things: the eighties, bad coffee, homemade pie, a young Mickey Rourke, Christmas, greasy spoons, and her. New IHOP, get the DVD, this is how the all-night hang is done. [Deadline]
