FOX has announced the next two live musicals following the success of Grease Live!
First up is Rent, which Fox will put on in celebration of its 20th anniversary!
OMG we can’t believe it either!
Then, during the holiday season — up against rival NBC‘s production of Bye Bye Birdie — Fox will bring out the big guns, of the Red Ryder BB variety, with a live version of A Christmas Story The Musical!

Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, who adapted the film into a musical back in 2012 (and went on to create the PHENOMENAL Dear Evan Hansen), will write all new songs for the TV production!
Marc Platt, who won an Emmy for producing the network’s acclaimed version of Grease, will coproduce both shows.
No dates have been announced yet, but expect casting announcements soon, especially on Rent.
Are YOU stoked for Fox’s next live musicals??
