The Notebook musical – first listen

The show opens this autumn in Chicago

Ingrid Michaelson

Chicago Shakespeare Theater – where the new musical adaptation of The Notebook will have its world premiere — has released a music video of the song "If This Is Love," performed by the show's composer Ingrid Michaelson. Take a look (and listen) below.

Based on the best-selling Nicholas Sparks novel and the subsequent blockbuster film, The Notebook is set to run at Chicago Shakespeare Theater this autumn from 6 September to 16 October.

In addition to a score by Michaelson (a multi-platinum singer-songwriter), the show features a book by playwright Bekah Brunstetter (NBC's This Is Us) and choreography by Katie Spelman. Michael Greif and Schele Williams direct.

Fingers crossed, one day it'll hop onto UK shores!
