Update on Jersey Boys Co-Author Rick Elice

January 27th, 2006

Playbill’s Robert Simonson reports that Jersey Boys co-author Rick Elice attended opening night this evening for Bridge & Tunnel, the solo show starring Sara Jones at the Helen Hayes Theater.

Elice said, so far, he hasn’t collected a dime on the Jersey Boys smash he wrote with Marshall Brickman, but he’s bracing for a windfall. He also said that he and Brickman have written another musical, which Tommy Tune is going to choreograph and direct. They will be launching this musical at the La Jolla Playhouse in the summer of 2007, the same theater where Jersey Boys debuted in the fall of 2004. Elice also noted that he and Brickman are going to write a play this spring, which he claims will be “very funny.”
