While the budget for the proposed show has not yet been determined, producers Jeffery Seller, Robyn Goodman, and Kevin McCullum said they expect the musical to be a large-scale production. Seller estimated the capital would be no less than $10 million.
The musical will mostly include stories from the original 1978 Tales of the City book, the first of seven in the series, according to the article. Tales has been adapted for television in three miniseries that aired on PBS and Showtime. (The Advocate)http://advocate.com/news_detail_ektid52708.asp
