According to a brief piece in yesterday’s Post, the latest hot property from the 80s headed to the Broadway stage as a lavish musical will be Cocktail (’88), with an adaptation by Heywood Gould, who wrote the original screenplay, to be produced by Marty Richards. There’s no word yet on who will star, but so long as they serve drinks throughout the performance—which, obviously, they pretty much have to—does it really matter? I hope one of the musical numbers involves people in giant cocktail bottle suits jumping on trampolines. (Vulture)
