Musical about rise of a superstar heads to Vegas

The Associated Press, Wednesday, December 19, 2012, 7:57am (PST)

NEW YORK (AP) — Some key figures who helped manage Michael Jackson's career are teaming up to create a musical about the behind-the-scenes making of a superstar that producers are calling a cross between "Goodfellas" and "Dreamgirls."

Producers Mark Lamica, Quincy Krashna, Jerry Greenberg and Larry Hart will join forces to present "The Man," a fictional show inspired by the rise of Jackson, Elvis Presley and Whitney Houston.

The team last combined to create "Larry Hart's Sisterella," a pop-rock update of the Cinderella fable that Jackson was an executive producer on before his death.

"The Man," with a book by Lamica and Hart, is expected to open in Las Vegas in the late fall of 2013.
