Tommy Mottola adapting ‘Super Fly’ for Broadway
Tommy Mottola might bring some Blaxploitation to Broadway in the near future. According to Page Six, the music mogul is working on a musical adaption of “Super Fly” that will be directed by Bill T. Jones. You may recognize Bill as the choreographer of “Fela!”
This is one of three musicals that Tommy hopes to bring to Broadway as he’s working on an adaption of A Bronx Tale that’s reportedly being directed by Robery DeNiro. The third show is a secret show that will be about an unidentified, “super-famous” celebrity.
There’s no word on who the celebrity might be, but it’s worth noting that he was once married to the “super-famous” Mariah Carey.
