Marc Shaiman
coscores, costars in new Martin Short stage show

Martin Short will find his way to Broadway this summer in the story of his life. Well, sort of. His show, a cheeky autobiographical musical called, Martin Short: Fame Becomes Me, will open August 10 at a theater to be announced.

Short, who has appeared on Broadway in musicals such as The Goodbye Girl and a revival of Little Me, cowrote the book for Fame Becomes Me with playwright Daniel Goldfarb. It has a score by romantic and musical partners Scott Wittman and Marc Shaiman, who provided the music and lyrics for Hairspray. Shaiman will be in Fame Becomes Me as the show's onstage musical director.

Casting for the musical's four other roles will be announced. Fame Becomes Me will play out-of-town tryouts in San Francisco, April 25 to May 21 at the Curran Theatre, and then Chicago, July 5 to July 16 at the LaSalle Bank Theatre, before coming to New York, it was announced Tuesday. (AP)
