Kenny Leon To Direct World Premiere Musical TRADING PLACES This Spring At Alliance Theatre in Atlanta

Get ready to Sell! Sell! Sell! The beloved film Trading Places will have its world-premiere musical at the Alliance Theatre in Atlanta next spring directed by Tony Award winner Kenny Leon. Based off the 1983 film from Paramount Pictures, Trading Places is a contemporary reimagining of the prince and pauper fable. Billie Rae Valentine, a savvy hustler down on her luck, and Louis Winthorpe III, a minted commodities-trading firm director, have their lives deliberately switched by the devious Duke brothers to settle a petty bet in an outrageous debate of nature versus nurture. Trading Places is helmed by an exciting creative team including television and film writers Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant, musical writing team Alan Zachary and Michael Weiner, acclaimed film, television, and music video choreographer Fatima Robinson, associate director Tinashe Kajese-Bolden.
