Motown Legends Join The First Wives Club For Stage Musical
Goldie Hawn, Diane Keaton and Bette Midler's 1996 buddy movie FIRST WIVES CLUB is set to become the latest film to hit the stage as a musical, thanks to Motown's biggest hitmakers.
Rock + Roll Hall of Fame inductees and Motown legends Brian and Eddie Holland and Lamont Dozier are working on an original score for the stage spectacular - which is scheduled to debut in San Diego, California next summer (09) - on its way to a Broadway run.
Holland-Dozier-Holland are responsible for some of the soul world's biggest hits - they penned tunes for The Supremes and the Four Tops, among others.
Both the 1996 movie and the new musical are adaptations of Olivia Goldsmith's novel.
