Broadway musical adaptation of ‘CRAZY RICH ASIANS’ is in development

Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures and Kevin Kwan have announced the development of CRAZY RICH ASIANS, a new Broadway musical based on the acclaimed worldwide bestselling trilogy by Kevin Kwan and the hugely successful Warner Bros. Pictures film directed by Jon M. Chu.

The timeline for a pre-Broadway engagement will be announced shortly.

Making his Broadway directorial debut following completion of his two-part film adaptation of Wicked and his critically acclaimed film adaptation of In The Heights, Jon M. Chu will revisit CRAZY RICH ASIANS for the stage with a book by Leah Nanako Winkler, music by Helen Park and lyrics by Amanda Green & Tat Tong.

 CRAZY RICH ASIANS takes a fun, engaging and hilarious look at what can happen when young love collides with old money.

Based on Kevin Kwan’s 2013 #1 New York Times bestselling novel CRAZY RICH ASIANS, the 2018 Warner Bros. film of the same name was directed by Jon M. Chu, with a screenplay by Peter Chiarelli and Adele Lim and starred Constance Wu, Henry Golding, Gemma Chan, Lisa Lu, Awkwafina, Ken Jeong, and Michelle Yeoh.  The highly acclaimed multi-award-winning film, CRAZY RICH ASIANS was #1 at the box-office for three weeks in a row.
