The Korean musical "My Scary Girl" based on the local hit film of the same name will be staged at the Acorn Theater on Broadway in New York from Oct. 1 to 4.

The performance is an official selection of the international production exchange between the Daegu International Musical Festival (DIMF) and the New York Musical Theater Festival (NYMF).

The production presented by Musical Heaven, a local company, was originally shown at the 2008 Musical Theater Lab for new works in development at the Barrington Stage Company (BSC).

It was the first Korean work selected by the BSC, the renowned American performing arts support group, to be presented at its theater lab.

The musical was staged as a development show in 2008 DIMF where it was a winner and received support from the second DIMF last year. The musical officially premiered in Seoul in March this year.

It has been highly appraised through being developed with revisions in trial runs at workshops and the festival before its premiere.

The stage adaptation of a 2006 Korean comedy/horror/romance film of the same name, portrays an awkward but romantic relationship that develops between Hwang Dae-woo, a naive English instructor who has never really dated a girl, and Lee Mi-na, a sweet girl who claims to be an art major but turns out to be a serial killer.

The show received positive reviews in the United States for its fresh and creative ideas.
Prominent composer Will Aronson provides the music with lyrics by Kang Kyoung-ae, who co-wrote a book with Mark St. Germain.

The musical will be performed in Korean with English subtitles.
