Apparently, “The Wanderer” and our very own Joey McIntyre are on their way to Broadway!
It was always the plan… “The Wanderer”, a musical about the life and music of Rock & Roll Hall-of-Famer Dion DiMucci, premiered in March 2022 at the Paper Mill Playhouse. Joey McIntyre (Johnny) was part of the cast that, for a month, introduced the musical to the world.
Now The Wanderer will have an invitation-only pre-Broadway industry presentation on November 10, at Carroll Music Studios in New York City.
