According to Jeff Buckley's official website, "
Two-time Tony Award nominee Alex Timbers will stage a winter developmental lab of the new Jeff Buckley musical The Last Goodbye.
Michael Kimmel conceived and adapted the rock musical that takes a contemporary look at Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet and sets it to the music and lyrics of late singer-songwriter Jeff Buckley.
Timbers (Peter and the Starcatcher) will direct the Jan. 27-Feb. 15, 2013, lab of The Last Goodbye.
"A legendary love. A transcendent artist. Shakespeare’s classic verse meets the driving, passionate rock of iconic singer-songwriter Jeff Buckley in the world premiere of The Last Goodbye... An ensemble of fourteen singer/actors bring to life the lyrical beauty of two great poets set in a world of youthful angst, grandeur, and grit. Fall for Romeo and Juliet all over again in this incendiary new musical." - (Williamstown Theatre Festival)
