Cyndi Lauper to score Broadway adaptation of 'Working Girl'

UPI News Service, 06/08/2017 

Cyndi Lauper will write the music and lyrics for an upcoming Broadway adaptation of the 1988 film "Working Girl."

Joining the 63-year-old singer will be playwright and writer of Fox's comedy series "New Girl" Kim Rosenstock, who is writing the book based on the original screenplay by Kevin Wade, notes The Hollywood Reporter.

"Working Girl," a romantic comedy about a secretary who attempts to push through Wall Street and land her dream job, featured an all-star cast that included Melanie Griffith, Harrison Ford, Sigourney Weaver, Joan Cusack, Kevin Spacey and Alec Baldwin.

The film was nominated for six Academy Awards including best picture, director, lead actress for Griffith and supporting actresses for Weaver and Joan Cusack.

It won the Oscar for Carly Simon's theme song, "Let the River Run."

"I love the film, and its story about a woman's very unconventional road to success in the Eighties is something I know a lot about. Women are still fighting for fundamental rights and equal pay! It's also laugh-out-loud funny, which is why Kim Rosenstock is the perfect person to write the book," Lauper said in a statement.

"Working Girl" is Lauper's second Broadway project after penning the music and lyrics to Tony award-winning musical "Kinky Boots" in 2013.
