#MeToo Musical: Weinstein Accuser Louisette Geiss Teams With Songwriter Diane Warren On New Production

The Right Girl, a new musical based on (and co-written by) the real-life story of former screenwriter Louisette Geiss and the sexual harassment by Harvey Weinstein she says ended her film career, will be presented in a film version to a live audience for the first time next month. The production features music by 11-time Oscar nominee Diane Warren and is directed and choreographed by Tony Award winner Susan Stroman.

The filmed performance will screen at the Barrington Stage Company in Pittsfield, Massachusetts on Sunday, November 1, the first time the musical will be seen by the public.

Geiss, a former actress who went public several years ago with her account of Weinstein masturbating in front of her while the two met at his Sundance Film Festival office ostensibly to discuss her screenwriting hopes, wrote the book for the new musical with Howard Kagan, and the lyrics with Warren and Kagan.
