A musical based on Prince’s life and art is playing in the United States next week.
The production, which has been in development for nearly two years, will open in the New York City area on May 26, according to the Broadway Company.
“We’ve been in talks with some major studios, but we’re hopeful to be able to open in June,” the Broadway spokesperson told The Hollywood Reporter.
“It’s a great opportunity for Prince fans in the area to see the Prince they’ve been waiting for.”
The show is being produced by The Broadway Company, which is owned by the Prince estate.
“The production is based on the life and work of Prince,” said Tony Award-winning musical director Daniel Boulud, who is based in New York.
“Prince’s stories have been a central focus of the musical and his legacy is central to the artistic experience of the show.
The Prince Estate has a long history of working with Broadway companies, and we are excited to welcome this exciting new production to the world.”
The Royal Opera House is set to play the first of two performances of the production, to be staged at the Brooklyn Academy of Music on May 20 and 21.
The Royal Shakespeare Company will perform the first act on June 17 and the Royal Opera will play the second act on July 15.
