Two Film Veterans Steering Documentary ‘Gotta Dance’ to Broadway

9 February 2015 10:02 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Filmmaker Dori Berinstein and former DreamWorks Animation executive Bill Damaschke have set a Chicago tryout for the musical adaptation of 2008 documentary “Gotta Dance,” with the production bowing late this year ahead of a Broadway run targeted for spring 2016.

Bill Damaschke, who left his post as chief creative office of Dwa in a shakeup last month, was among the lead producers of Broadway’s “Shrek the Musical” during his time at Dwa. He’d also begun work on “Gotta Dance” while he was with the company.

Berinstein, whose documentaries include “Carol Channing: Larger Than Life” and “Marvin Hamlisch: What He Did for Love,” directed and produced the doc “Gotta Dance,” about a senior-citizen dance team learning to dance hip-hop for a performance during a pro basketball game. She’s also been on the producing team of Broadway shows including “Legally Blonde” and “Thoroughly Modern Millie.”
