Classic US teen drama ‘The O.C.’ to become stage musical for one night only

It's being produced by the duo behind 'The Unauthorized Musical Parody Of Cruel Intentions'

Classic US teen drama The O.C. is to be turned into a stage musical.

The musical, which will play for one night only in Los Angeles on August 30, is being written and directed by Jordan Ross and produced by Lindsey Rosin, the duo behind The Unauthorized Musical Parody Of Cruel Intentions, which was recently attended by the stars of the film, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Reese Witherspoon and Selma Blair, in a mini-reunion.

In addition to Marissa, Ryan, Seth and Summer – the characters played in the TV series by Mischa Barton, Benjamin McKenzie, Adam Brody and Rachel Bilson – the musical version of The O.C. will also feature a role for Josh Schwartz, the creator of the hit teen drama, reports Variety. Further details are currently unknown but a Twitter account for the musical has been set up and earlier today (June 29) asked fans of the show for song suggestions.

Created by Schwartz, The O.C. followed a group of mostly rich and privileged teenagers in Orange County, California for four seasons between 2003 and 2007. Schwartz later developed another hit teen series, Gossip Girl, which ran from 2007 to 2012.
