Cyndi Lauper is bringing her musical chops to Broadway again. The “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” singer will write the music and lyrics for the upcoming “Working Girl” stage musical, Entertainment Weekly writes.
Playwright and TV writer Kim Rosenstock (“Tigers Be Still,” “New Girl”) will pen the book for “Working Girl” from Kevin Wade’s original film script. Fox Stage Productions and Aged in Wood Productions are producing. A director has not been announced.
“Working Girl” is based on the 1988 Mike Nichols film of the same name, which stars Melanie Griffith, Sigourney Weaver, and Harrison Ford. It centers on Tess McGill (Griffith), secretary to corporate exec Katharine Parker (Weaver). When Katharine steals a business idea from Tess, Tess decides to get revenge by working her way up and taking Katharine’s job. Tess also ends up falling for her boss’ boyfriend (Ford) along the way.
“‘Working Girl’ was a groundbreaking depiction of a working-class woman determined to succeed in the cutthroat, male-dominated corporate world of the 1980s,” Fox Stage and Aged in Wood emphasized in a statement. “Funny and smart, this now-iconic tale is just as relevant today — and who better to adapt it for Broadway than Cyndi Lauper, who’s been a change maker in music since the ’80s, and Kim Rosenstock of the hit TV series ‘New Girl?’”
“I’m really excited for so many reasons,” Lauper added. “I love the film, and its story about a woman’s very unconventional road to success in the ’80s is something I know a lot about. Women are still fighting for fundamental rights and equal pay!”
Lauper made history as the first woman to win the Tony for Best Original Score. She took home the award in 2013 for her work on “Kinky Boots.” The musical, also based on a film, earned Lauper the Grammy for Best Musical Theater Album in 2014. She won the Grammy Award for Best New Artist in 1985. Lauper has sold over 50 million records throughout her career. She’ll be honored by Lgbt channel Logo at its upcoming 2017 Trailblazing Honors.
Cyndi Lauper Writing Music and Lyrics for “Working Girl” Stage Musical was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.
Throughout her 30-year-plus career, Cyndi Lauper has been known as an outspoken advocate of Lgbt rights, so it comes as no surprise that the Grammy winner will be honored by Logo at its 2017 Trailblazing Honors event. Launched in 2005, the lifestyle channel is targeted to the Lgbt community.
“The television network praised the 63-year-old singer-songwriter for her advocacy through song and theater,” Page Six writes. In 2008, the “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” singer co-founded the True Colors Fund “to help address homelessness among Lgbt youth.” She’s participated in gay pride events across the globe and serves as a member of the Matthew Shepard Foundation Board, an Lgbt nonprofit organization founded by the parents of Matthew Shepard, a University of Wyoming student who was beaten to death in 1998.
When asked about what got her involved in the fight for Lgbt rights, Lauper said, “My sister is part of the community, and my friends are part of the community … I started to see discrepancies and things that weren’t right, and I didn’t want to just shut my mouth, because I don’t believe in that.”
As for the impact of her advocacy, the singer observed, “Everybody can create change around them by changing their mind about someone else, and including people, and also… if you want to change the world, change what’s right around you.”
Lauper has sold over 50 million records.
The 2017 Trailblazer Honors will be held in New York on June 22. The event will air as an hourlong special the following day on VH1 and Logo.
