Musical of 'First Wives Club' heads to Broadway

By

NEW YORK (AP) — Revenge will be in the air in a few years when a musical version of "The First Wives Club" comes calling on Broadway.

The comedy about a trio of vengeful ex-spouses has been revamped and rewritten for the stage by Emmy Award-nominee Linda Bloodworth Thomason, the writer and producer of such TV shows as "Designing Women" and "Evening Shade."

The musical will make its debut at Chicago's Oriental Theater next spring with hopes it can come to Broadway in the 2015-2016 season.
