Broadway World posted news that a stage adaptation of The Shining is coming to Omaha's Benson Theatre. The play will be directed by Jason Levering, from a script written by Levering and Aaron Sailors and approved by Mr. King.
Broadway World points out that a play is a good set up for the Shining, since the book itself is a tragedy in five acts.
The Benson Theatre is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that fosters the success of local artists, philanthropists, entrepreneurs, and underserved populations within the historic community of Benson. Our goal is to acquire and restore the historic Benson Theatre at 6054 Maple Street in Omaha to serve as a shared community space for business education and artistic performance. Benson is a flourishing arts and entertainment district, and the timing to restore our historic theater and bring more diverse entertainment and vital business education to our community has never been better. The Theatre's prime location in downtown Benson has the potential to bring thousands of new visitors to the Benson business district for more than 500 events annually.Full article is at broadwayworld.com
