"Good Vibrations," a new musical using more than 30 Beach Boys songs, will open on Broadway in January. The show will begin preview performances in early December at the Eugene O'Neill Theatre. An opening date has not been announced.

"Good Vibrations" has a book by Richard Dresser and centers around a group of small-town teenagers who move to Southern California. It will be directed and choreographed by John Carrafa, who created the dance sequences for "Urinetown" and the Vanessa Williams-starring revival of "Into the Woods."

Among the songs expected to be used in the show are such Beach Boys classics as "Good Vibrations," "Fun, Fun, Fun," "California Girls," "Help Me, Rhonda," "Surf City," "Surfer Girl" and "Surfin' Safari."

The show had a recent workshop production at New York Stage & Film, a summer festival located on the campus of Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, N.Y.
