Musical spin-off of WILL GRAYSON, WILL GRAYSON


David Levithan announced plans to release a musical spin-off of Will Grayson, Will Grayson. Hold Me Closer: The Tiny Cooper Story will be released both as a musical production and a novel written in the style of a script.

Tiny Cooper was introduced in Will Grayson, Will Grayson as a side-character producing a script for the musical of his own life.  Levithan has since written the complete script for the musical, with support and enthusiasm from Will Grayson, Will Grayson co-author John Green.  The story follows Tiny Cooper’s life from birth to adolescence.

“I always thought it’d be really fun if it were a musical in novel form as well as a novel in musical form, so hopefully it works as both,” said Levithan.

Hold Me Closer: The Tiny Cooper Story is slated for release in March 2015. For more about David Levithan, visit his website or follow him on Facebook or Twitter.
