Cyndi Lauper Will Write The Music For Broadway Adaptation Of ‘Working Girl’

Cyndi Lauper will come up with an original score for the Broadway adaptation of Working Girl. In a joint statement on Tuesday, Robyn Goodman of Aged in Wood and Bob Cohen of Fox Stage said:

Working Girl was a groundbreaking depiction of a working-class woman determined to succeed in the cutthroat, male-dominated corporate world of the 1980s. Funny and smart, this now-iconic tale is just as relevant today.”

Lauper added that she loved the film’s central theme – about a young woman who carves her own ‘unconventional’ road to success. 


Kim Rosenstock will pen the book for the musical, while Fox Stage Productions and Aged In Wood co-produce. 

The original film was a romantic comedy starring Melanie Griffith, Harrison Ford and Sigourney Weaver in lead roles. Griffith played the tired, overused secretary of Weaver. She decides to take advantage of her boss’s absence to spearhead a merger that brings her to the attention of Ford.

Cyndi Lauper made her singing debut in the eighties. She has several hits to her name, most notable among them being the girls anthem, ‘Girls Just Wanna Have Fun’.
