A production of “Sisterella,” a pop-rock update of the Cinderella fable that had been backed by Michael Jackson, is being planned for Los Angeles next spring.
Jerry Greenberg and Frank Dileo will produce the Larry Hart-written musical, which first debuted in Los Angeles at the Pasadena Playhouse in 1996. Jackson was the executive producer.
Greenberg was president of Jackson’s jointly owned record label with Sony Music for 11 years. Dileo was the pop icon’s manager.
Casting and further details were expected later.
