Kenny Leon Will Direct Broadway-Aimed Guess Who's Coming to Dinner
By Kenneth Jones
Jeffrey Finn Productions is developing a new Broadway-aimed production of the groundbreaking 1967 film, "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner," with Kenny Leon attached as director.
Late screenwriter William Rose's Academy Award-winning screenplay will be adapted for the theatre by Todd Kreidler, who served as dramaturg to the late August Wilson on both Gem of the Ocean and Radio Golf.
Producer Finn (Tony Award-nominated for On Golden Pond starring James Earl Jones) is hoping for a Dinner date on Broadway in fall 2008.
