A musical about the “Me Too” movement, created by a cast of professional laureates, including a screenwriter who denounced producer Harvey Weinstein for sexual harassment, will premiere on November 1 after the covid-19 pandemic forced to postpone his debut in New York.

The Right Girl is co-written by Louisette Geiss, a former actress and screenwriter who in 2017 accused Weinstein of sexually harassing her; Directed and choreographed by Tony Award-winning Susan Stroman; features music by Grammy-nominated and Oscar-nominated Diane Warren; and with well-known Broadway performers. 

Geiss, who created this work based on his story with producer Howard Kagan, told the Deadline portal that the creative team heard from "more than 20 survivors" of harassment by a dozen powerful men in the entertainment sector, and showed their hope that bringing their stories to the stage "empowers others to speak." 

It is the first piece that is presented in a pandemic.
