Songwriter Randy Newman -- who has penned music for countless films, including "Toy Story" and "Monsters, Inc." -- will have a new musical premiered at the Mark Taper Forum in November 2010.
"Harps and Angels" will feature songs previously written by Newman arranged in a way to tell a story about the American experience, according to Center Theatre Group.
Some of the Newman songs to be included are: "I Think It's Going to Rain Today," "Sail Away," "Marie," "Rednecks," "My Country," "Louisiana 1927," "Feels Like Home," "You've Got a Friend in Me" and "I Love L.A."
A spokeswoman for the company said that Newman has not composed new songs for the production and will not appear on stage.
