M. Wells Is Closed, But Diner Is Coming to Broadway

So many options for opening night festivites!

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]
