Marshall’s involvement is a major highlight for this production. A nine-time Tony nominee, Marshall has won three Tony Awards for her choreography in “Wonderful Town” (2004), “The Pajama Game” (2006), and “Anything Goes” (2011). As a director, her Broadway credits include “Wonderful Town,” “The Pajama Game,” “Grease,” “Anything Goes,” “Nice Work If You Can Get It,” “Living On Love,” and “In Transit.”

Adapted from the film written by Ron Bass, the musical follows the story of food critic Julianne Potter, who tries to reignite a romance with her old flame just as he’s about to get married. The original movie starred Julia Roberts and featured the memorable group performance of “I Say a Little Prayer” led by Rupert Everett.

The musical’s book is co-written by Ron Bass and Jonathan Harvey.
