Yes the clumsiest family in the world, whose adventures we’ve followed for generations, The Griswolds, are coming to the stage!
No production timeline or creative team has yet been announced for the project, currently titled Broadway Vacation.
Centered around the misadventures of the Griswold family, the Vacation franchise began in 1983 with National Lampoon’s Vacation, starring Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo. European Vacation, Vegas Vacation, and Christmas Vacation followed before 2015’s Vacation, which featured the next generation of the Griswold clan.
“While the characters are familiar, Broadway Vacation will take them on a completely original musical journey—and on a trip to New York that they will never forget,” Deutsch said in a statement.
This has so much AWESOME potential, lets just hope they don’t blow the lights in time square reenacting the Christmas lights scene…
