Description

Susan Seidelman, best known for Desperately Seeking Susan, She-Devil and TV Series Sex and the City, and Ned Paul Ginsburg, best known for his orchestrations in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, Minnelli on Minnelli and Gershwin’s Fascinatin’ Rhythm, are now working on the new musical adaptation of "Boynton Beach Club"! They will be coming Bradenton, Florida to collaborate on the World Premiere production of the highly anticipated new musical, Seidelman as writer and Ginsburg as composer. Susan wrote and directed the original movie "Boynton Beach Club" which premiered in 2005 and is reinvigorated to be working on the new musical adaptation. Susan and Ned will be working alongside Manatee Players’ Producing Artistic Director Rick Kerby (also serving as director for the production) throughout the creative process, fine-tuning and workshopping the new piece. The team’s connection with the community started with a successful film screening at Sarasota Film Festival in 2006. "Boynton Beach Club" follows the journey of three couples in an adult community in Florida who turn to one another for support and companionship after the deaths of their spouses. Lois has a rejuvenating affair with a younger man while acting as best friend to recently widowed Marilyn. Jack buddies up with Harry for a crash course in solo survival skills and deals with single gal Sandy's romantic overtures.
