Theater buffs, get your calendars out. The District will be getting a little more musical this fall.  Arena Stage in Washington will produce the world premiere of “Like Water for Chocolate,” a new musical, during its 2011-2012 season.

 

The play is based on the 1989 best-selling novel by Laura Esquivel.  It is scheduled to run Sept. 9 through Oct. 30 as part of an arrangement with Broadway producer Margo Lion.

 

The musical is among 11 new productions for the theater company’s second year at its new location, the Mead Center for American Theater.

 

Arena Stage will also produce “The Music Man,” to be directed by Molly Smith.

 

In addition, there will be four comedies, new works from two resident playwrights, presentations from Chicago’s Goodman Theatre, the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, and a tribute to playwright Eugene O’Neill.
