Bull Durham the Musical Is a Real Thing

bull-durham

For all fans of the classical baseball movie Bull Durham hoping for a continuation of Crash Davis' story, there's good news and there's bad news. The good news is writer and director Ron Shelton is bringing Bull Durham back and with a new second act. The bad new is there will be singing involved:

The musical was announced Tuesday night at a Winter Meetings reception in Disney’s Swan and Dolphin resort hosted by Buffalo Bisons owners Bob and Mindy Rich, who are funding the project as part of their Rich Entertainment Group.

The play will follow the same plot line of the movie that starred Kevin Costner, Tim Robbins and Susan Sarandon but with a more in-depth look into some of the movie’s secondary characters and a few new twists and turns toward the end, Shelton said. “I didn’t really have a third act in the movie,” Shelton said, “so I had to invent some new stuff for the second act (of the play).”

The musical will debut at the Alliance Theater in Atlanta and then move to Broadway. It promises to use many of the movie's classic lines as song lyrics, which can only make me think it will turn out like this:
