“Transparent remains an incredibly impactful series with salient representation for the LGBTQIA+ community,” said Nick Pepper, Head of SVOD US Wholly Owned Development, Amazon Studios. “This is the ideal series and characters to bring from series to stage , and we’re thrilled to partner with Tony-winning Broadway producer Eva Price.

Second Variety, A transparent musical is told through the eyes of the Pfefferman family’s youngest child, Ali Pfefferman: “Ali’s Los Angeles Jewish family is full of secrets, but when their mother, Maura — played by Daya Curley — moves on to the transgender matriarch she has always known to be, the family is forced to confront their identities and navigate their relationships with each other. Through a revealing story of acceptance and self-expression, A Transparent Musical explores the intersection of Jewish and queer history, celebrating the imperfectly human and surprisingly familiar aspects of a universally recognizable family.
The TV series also ended in 2019 with a musical finale.
Both Soloways were previously behind the stage production Brady’s Real Band Live which played in Australia and later gave birth to the The movie Brady’s Bunch and its sequels.
