Super Fly Getting a Workshop
Bill T. Jones, creator of Fela! and two-time Tony-winning choreographer of Spring Awakening, has his next project lined up. He is currently at work on what Playbill.com is describing as a "new soul-funk musical Super Fly" which is expecting an October workshop. Jones will direct and choreograph the show, which has a book by Seth Zvi Rosenfeld and uses the music of Curtis Mayfield. Mayfield wrote the score for the 1972 movie. According to the Equity casting notice, the show will also incorporate popular R&B, soul, funk and pop songs of the era.
