Chicago Shakespeare will stage the Broadway-bound World Premiere musical The Notebook, based on the best-selling novel that inspired one of the most romantic films of all time. The powerhouse creative team features music and lyrics by multi-Platinum singer-songwriter Ingrid Michaelson, and book by playwright Bekah Brunstetter, best known as a writer and producer on NBC's hit series This Is Us. Broadway directors Michael Greif (Dear Evan Hansen, Next to Normal, Grey Gardens, RENT) and Schele Williams (Aida, Motown the Musical) team up to direct this deeply moving portrait of the enduring power of love. Beginning with a whirlwind summer romance, the decades-long love story between a mill worker named Noah and a privileged debutante named Allie spans a lifetime-in spite of the differences that threaten to pull them apart.
