"Nick & Nora," the new American musical based on the popular "Thin Man" movies, will open the 1991-92 season at the Morris A. Mechanic Theatre. Postponed twice during the theater's current season, the show will run from Sept. 24 through Oct. 20, 1991.
Producers Terry Allen Kramer, James M. Nederlander and Charlene Nederlander, in association with Daryl Roth, have supplied the funding for the musical comedy, which is now fully backed and scheduled to go into rehearsals this summer.
Joanna Gleason and Barry Bostwick will head the cast as the famous movie sleuths Nick and Nora Charles. The $6 million musical will reflect the art deco Hollywood of 1930. Tony Award-winning playwright and director Arthur Laurents has written the book and will direct.
