Vegas ‘Duck Dynasty’s A Real Crap Shoot; Allison Williams In ‘Finding Neverland’?

14 November 2014 3:30 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Here are two bold predictions about what will not be coming to Broadway anytime soon: Duck Dynasty: The Musical, and Allison Williams as Peter Pan in Finding Neverland. Anything else you read about either show is speculation. Kindly unknot your knickers.

First, the Duck decoy: The New York Times did a rather extraordinary favor on Thursday for the producers of a Las Vegas revue based on A&E’s Duck Dynasty franchise. The Times put this very silly story on page A1 and, in the headline, attached the word “Broadway” to the enterprise. This caused a number of otherwise sane theater denizens to foam at the mouth over the prospect of an invasion by reckless red-state redneck homophobes into the sacred PC precincts of Times Square, which must by any means necessary be kept safe for the roving gangs of Elmos, Batmen and premium-price ticket sellers desperately trying to sink their hooks, »

Harvey Weinstein’s ‘Finding Neverland’ Re-Boot Is Twee To The Max

14 August 2014 4:17 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Not that there’s anything wrong with that. Well, a few things, maybe.

It’s not at all hard to understand why Harvey Weinstein turned to Diane Paulus to overhaul Finding Neverland, the musical based on Miramax’s 2004 movie starring Johnny Depp as Peter Pan creator J.M Barrie. Paulus brings a broad catholicity of taste to her work as artistic director of the non-profit American Repertory Theatre, and that wide-ranging sensibility has led to her own souped-up, physically dazzling revivals of Hair and Pippin, both of which moved to Broadway.

When a 2012 tryout in Leicester, England under the leadership of Rob Ashford was met with yawns, Weinstein sent Finding Neverland back to the drawing board. In addition to hiring Paulus, he replaced Allan Knee (who wrote The Man Who Was Peter Pan, the basis for the film) with James Graham as book writer. U.K. pop-music specialists Gary Barlow »
