More information about The Outsiders on Broadway

The Outsiders musical premiered at La Jolla Playhouse in spring 2023. It is inspired both by Hinton's 1967 novel and Coppola's 1983 movie, adapting dialogue and narrative elements from each. Director Danya Taymor, in her second Broadway directing gig after Pass Over, and Tony-nominated bookwriter Adam Rapp (The Sound Inside) provide fresh updates to the characters.

The heart of the story, though, remains the same — like the book, The Outsiders on Broadway is poetic without sacrificing grittiness. What made Hinton's novel so groundbreaking for its time (and the film, too) was how naturalistically she portrayed the lives, speech, and mannerisms of struggling, abandoned teenagers — something rarely portrayed in media at the time.

What to watch for

  • S. E. Hinton started writing The Outsiders when she was just 15 years old and still in high school! She was 18 when it was published, and she later cameoed in the film as a nurse.
  • The Outsiders features music by the folk duo Jamestown Revival, composed of Jonathan Clay and Zach Chance. Other shows with folk music include the Tony-winning Hadestown and the Tony-nominated Bright Star.
  • Carmine Coppola, Francis Ford Coppola's father, scored The Outsiders film. We wonder if Jamestown Revival incorporated any themes or similar sounds into the stage score!
  • The movie launched the careers of multiple then-new actors now known as the Brat Pack, including Patrick Swayze, Ralph Macchio, Rob Lowe, and Tom Cruise.
  • The Tulsa, Oklahoma house where The Outsiders was filmed is now a museum featuring props from the movie. Hip-hop artist Danny Boy O'Connor, a lifelong fan of the book and film, bought and restored it from its once-run-down condition in 2016.
