Freaky Friday

  • La Jolla Playhouse 2910 La Jolla Village Drive San Diego, CA, 92037 United States (map)


Book by Bridget Carpenter, Music by Tom Kitt and Lyrics by Brian Yorkey
Based on the novel “Freaky Friday” by Mary Rodgers
and the Walt Disney motion pictures
Directed by Christopher Ashley

Hailed by The Washington Post as “a polished, peppy, modern fairy tale,” Disney’s new musical Freaky Friday is based on the celebrated novel by Mary Rodgers and two hit Disney films. The classic story of a mother and daughter who magically swap bodies for 24 chaotic hours has been given a contemporary spin with a hilarious new book by Bridget Carpenter (“Parenthood,” “Friday Night Lights”) and “a driving pop‐rock score” (DC Metro Theatre Arts) by Tony Award® and Pulitzer Prize winners Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey (Next to Normal, If/Then). With inventive staging by Playhouse Artistic Director Christopher Ashley and sharp choreography by Sergio Trujillo (Memphis, Jersey Boys), this dynamic production is “delightfully spunky” with “timeless appeal” (Variety).
