S.E Hilton's iconic novel comes to life on stage in 2020 as the Goodman Theater presents the world premiere of The Outsiders. Based on Hilton's 1967 young adult masterpiece and Francis Ford Coppola's era-defining motion picture (which starred the likes of a young Tom Cruise, Rob Lowe and Patrick Swayze) The Outsiders follows a gang of youngsters as they cling onto survival.
The Outsiders features music and lyrics by Jamestown Revival and a book by the award-winning Adam Rapp. This brand new stage adaptation will be directed by Liesl Tommy and will feature choreography by Broadway favorite Lorin Latarro.
