Charles Musical Delayed Until 2011
A new Broadway musical based on the life of late R&B legend Ray Charles has been postponed until 2011.
Unchain My Heart, produced by Charles' longtime collaborator Stuart Benjamin, was expected to begin previews this October (10), but producers have been forced to push back the launch until next spring (11) due to "logistical reasons".
The play, starring Brandon Victor Dixon as the iconic singer, will now open at New York's Shubert Theatre instead of the Barry Theatre.
Charles, who died in 2004, was played on the big screen by Jamie Foxx - a role that won the star an Oscar.
