GOSSIP: Finding Neverland Broadway casting, Calendar Girls musical update & Nicholas Hytner's new musical project

As usual, the Daily Mail's Baz Bamigboye is full of gossip tonight! He has revealed that Matthew Morrison has signed to star as J. M. Barrie in Gary Barlow and Eliot Kennedy's musical adaptation of Finding Neverland on Broadway! The cast will also include Laura Michelle Kelly as Sylvia Llewelyn Davies. 

Meanwhile Barlow and Tim Firth are apparently in the studio with Claire Moore and Joanna Riding recording "try-out" songs from their new musical adaptation of Calendar Girls. The show will reportedly receive its world premiere in a village hall in the Yorkshire Dales next year. 

Finally Bamigboye reports that, following his departure from the National, Nicholas Hytner will direct a new musical version of Carmen. A read through has apparently already been held. The new adaptation of Georges Bizet’s opera is by Lucy Prebble. Bamigboye suggests that we can expect to see Carmen on a London stage in 2016.

All of this gossip is yet to be confirmed
