By MARK KENNEDY , AP Drama Writer

NEW YORK (AP) -- The musical based on the film "Diner" has postponed its spring Broadway opening.

Producers said late Sunday night that the Kathleen Marshall-directed show, with songs by Sheryl Crow, will make its debut on Broadway in the fall.

Producer Scott Zeiger in a statement says a four-week workshop of the show in November got good feedback, and that early fall dates work better for all involved.

Set in Baltimore on Christmas 1959, the story explores the lives of a circle of friends in their early 20s, all set to vintage rock 'n' roll and doo-wop.

Barry Levinson, who wrote and directed the 1982 film, adapted it into the new musical. The film starred Steve Guttenberg, Mickey Rourke, Kevin Bacon, Paul Reiser, Tim Daly, Daniel Stern and Ellen Barkin.
