The Lost Boys, A New Musical will host a private industry reading on February 23, 2024, which will feature Caissie Levy as Lucy Emerson, Nathan Levy as Sam Emerson, and Lorna Courtney as Star. The new musical will feature direction by Tony Award winner Michael Arden, book by David Hornsby & Chris Hoch, music & lyrics by The Rescues (Kyler England, AG, Gabriel Mann), with Tony Award nominee Ethan Popp serving as Music Supervisor and General Management by Bespoke Theatricals.

Based on the 1987 classic Warner Bros. film, with a story by James Jeremias and Janice Roberta Fischer, The Lost Boys, A New Musical will be produced by special arrangement with Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures. Mark Kaufman and Lauren Shuler Donner are serving as Creative Consultants for the project.

The Rescues are known for their breathtaking harmonies and unforgettable songs. They released their major label debut "Let Loose The Horses" on Universal Republic in 2010 to critical acclaim and have soundtracked memorable moments in every corner of music, film and television. The Lost Boys, A New Musical marks the first collaboration of Broadway and film actors James Carpinello, Marcus Chait, and Golden Globe, Emmy & Tony nominee Patrick Wilson as producers.

The 1987 American supernatural horror-comedy, directed by Joel Schumacher and produced by Richard Donner, follows two teenage brothers who move with their divorced mother to the fictional town of Santa Carla, California, only to discover that the town is a haven for vampires. The film won the award for Best Horror Film by the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror Films, and spawned a franchise that included two sequels and two comic book series. A teenage vampire movie that was tawdry, pulpy and sexually charged, The Lost Boys was a critical and commercial success and has since achieved cult classic status by transcending the genre with its unique blend of horror and comedy. The film defined a new era within pop culture by shifting the depiction of vampires for a younger generation. The Lost Boys was the last word in the 1980’s as a teen vamp angst coming-of-age story: physical transformation, sexual awakening, and experimentation. The film appeals to multiple generations and inspired subsequent film and television projects like “Buffy The Vampire Slayer,” “True Blood” and “Twilight.”
