Vanities, a new musical by Jack Heifner, will open on Broadway in the fall of 2008. Music and lyrics wiil be provided by David Kirshenbaum. It will be directed by Judith Ivey. And it will be produced by Junkyard Dog Productions and Bartner/Jenkins. Theatre and casting information will follow at a later time.

Vanities is based on Heifner's 1976 Off-Broadway comedy that ran for 1,785 performances. The show revolved around three Texas teenagers-and chronicled various stages in their lives. The musical version was originally produced in the summer of 2006 at Theatre Works in Palo Alto. It was also at the 2006 National Alliance for Musical Theatre Festival of New Musicals.

Heifner has authored more than 15 plays and has written the book to six musicals. Kirshenbaum is the composer- lyricist of, among others, Summer of ? and Yes, Virginia, There is a Santa Claus. Ivey has been in numerous shows, including Steaming and Hurly Burly, winning Tony Awards and Drama Desk Awards for both. She's directed Fugue, The Butcher of Baraboo, More and Southern Comforts.
