NEW YORK (AP) — The big hooks and soaring melodies of Grammy-winning songwriter Diane Warren are heading to Broadway.
Tony Award-winning producer Dede Harris tells The Associated Press that she has optioned Warren's entire music catalog with an eye to getting her hits into a musical. The creative team and a timeline for the project will be announced at a later date.
A formal announcement is to be made later Thursday.
