About Freaky Friday
When an overworked mother and her teenage daughter magically swap bodies, they have just one day to put things right again before mom’s big wedding. Disney’s Freaky Friday, a new musical based on the celebrated novel by Mary Rodgers and the hit Disney films, is a hilarious, contemporary update of an American classic in which a mother and daughter really see what it is to be a family and experience each other’s lives first-hand, if only for a day.
With a score by Columbia alumni Tom Kitt ‘96CC and Brian Yorkey ‘93CC, the Pulitzer Prize-winning composers of Next to Normal and If/Then and a book by Parenthood’s Bridget Carpenter, Freaky Friday is a delightfully entertaining world premiere musical for anyone with a perfectly imperfect family.
