A musical adaptation of White House comedy Dave is in the works.

The 1993 movie, featuring Kevin Kline as both the President and his doppelganger, has been turned into a stageshow by an all-star team of Broadway veterans.

Dave The Musical features music from Next to Normal composer Tom Kitt, lyrics by Legally Blonde writer Nell Benjamin, and a book by Hairspray co-creator Thomas Meehan.

Producers are hoping to premiere the show in late 2015 following a successful private reading last month (Oct14).

The film version was directed by Ivan Reitman and also featured Sigourney Weaver, Frank Langella and Sir Ben Kingsley.
