Previews will begin at Off-Broadway's New World stages Nov. 11 with an official opening set for Nov. 18.

forever dustyBroadway.com describes the musical as follows:

"Forever Dusty" tells the compelling and moving story of Dusty Springfield’s journey from awkward Catholic schoolgirl to rock legend, in a musical filled with some of the '60s most recognizable pop songs, including “Son of a Preacher Man,” “You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me,” “The Look of Love” and many others.

Christina Sajous, Coleen Sexton, Jonathan C. Kaplan Cast in Off-Broadway's Forever Dusty, Musical About Dusty Springfield
By Andrew Gans
04 Oct 2012

Casting is now complete for Forever Dusty, a new musical by Kirsten Holly Smith and Jonathan Vankin about the life of late singer Dusty Springfield that will begin previews at Off-Broadway's New World stages Nov. 11 with an official opening set for Nov. 18.

Directed by Randal Myler (Love, Janis; It Ain't Nothin' But the Blues), Forever Dusty will be produced by Jorja Fox, Leslie Brockett, Jane Gullong and Sandalphon Productions, with executive producer Eva Price of Maximum Entertainment Productions.

Christina SajousCo-writer Smith, as previously reported, will also star in the production. She will be joined by the newly announced Christina Sajous, Coleen Sexton, Benim Foster, Sean Patrick Hopkins, Ashley Betton and Jonathan C. Kaplan.

"I'm ecstatic to be part of the team bringing Forever Dusty to the New York Stage,” said Price in a previous statement. “Dusty Springfield was one of the most inspiring and soulful performers of the 20th century. Dusty transformed the music industry and paved the way for the likes of Adele and Amy Winehouse in a world that doesn't often appreciate the magic of vocal performance and true melody. Being able to tell Dusty's complicated and compelling life story through musical theater and Kirsten's performance is a gift to the Fall Theatrical Season."

The creative team will also include set designer Wilson Chin, lighting designer Richard DiBella, sound designer Matt Kraus, musical director Michael Thomas Murray and costume designer Nancy Palmatier.
Forever Dusty, according to the producers, tells the "compelling and moving story of Dusty’s journey, in a dramatic, high-energy musical filled with some of the most exciting pop songs ever written," including “Son of a Preacher Man,” “You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me,” “The Look of Love” and many others.

Born Mary Isobel Catherine Bernadette O’Brien, Dusty Springfield became the first great female pop star of the 1960s.

Show times will be Monday at 7 PM, Wednesday at 2:30 PM and 7 PM, Thursday and Friday at 8 PM, Saturday at 2:30 PM and 8 PM and Sunday at 3 PM.

New World Stages is located at 340 West 50th Street. Tickets range in price from $69-$79, with premium tickets available at $110. There will also be a general rush policy in place, which will take place every day when the box office opens. Rush tickets will be $26.50, cash only, and each person may purchase up to two tickets.
