The Honeymooners, a new musical based on the legendary CBS television series of the same name, will get its world premiere as part of Goodspeed Musicals‘ 2015 season.

Directed by Tony Award winner John Rando (On the Town, A Christmas Story, Urinetown), who helms the show’s upcoming industry readings (presented by Goodspeed and Jeffrey Finn Productions), the musical features a book by Dusty Kay and Bill Nuss, music by Stephen Weiner and lyrics by Peter Mills.

Here’s how it’s billed: “Ralph Kramden and Ed Norton are back and still shooting for the moon in this world-premiere musical. Filled with big laughs and an infectious score, The Honeymooners will bang-zoom its way into theatergoers’ hearts.”

The Honeymooners is being presented in association with Jeffrey Finn Productions, and under a license from CBS Broadcasting, Inc. Performances will run Sept. 18-Nov. 29, 2015.

The cast of the November readings features Tony Award winner Michael McGrath as Ralph Kramden, four-time Emmy Award winner and Tony Award nominee Hank Azaria as Ed Norton, Drama Desk Award nominee Leslie Kritzer as Alice Kramden and Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Award nominee Megan Hilty as Trixie Norton.
