Angelina Jolie is getting ready to take The Outsiders to Broadway, with the help of her 15-year-old daughter, Vivienne Jolie-Pitt.

This isn’t the first Broadway production the Maleficent actress has been involved with but now her youngest daughter will join her in the theatre as an assistant.

Vivienne is one of six children that Angelina shares with ex-husband Brad Pitt, with whom she is currently locked in a divorce battle.

The other children are Maddox, 22, Pax, 19, Zahara, 18, Shiloh, 17, and Vivienne’s twin brother Knox. 

The mum-and-daughter duo were seen in New York on Tuesday afternoon, with Angelina looking effortlessly glam in a flowy dark blue dress and matching blazer topped off with stiletto Christian Louboutins.

Vivienne kept things casual, tucking a white crewneck jumper into baggy black trousers and accessorising with Converse trainers.

Angelina is now the lead producer on the Broadway musical production of The Outsiders, based on Francis Ford Coppola’s 1983 film.

The original film was packed full of stars, including Tom Cruise, Diane Lane, Rob Lowe, Patrick Swayze, Matt Dillon, and Emilio Estevez.

A cast and show dates for this new production are yet to be announced but it has just finished an off-Broadway run, which is thought to be where Angelina and Vivienne first saw the musical.

The teen will be a volunteer assistant on the production and have direct involvement in the show, according to ET.

‘Viv reminds me of my mother [Marcheline Bertrand] in that she isn’t focused on being the centre of attention but in being a support to other creatives,’ the Girl, Interrupted actress said in a statement to the outlet.

‘She’s very thoughtful and serious about theatre and working hard to best understand how to contribute.’

The Outsiders musical features a story by Adam Rapp with Justin Levine, music and lyrics by Jonathan Clay, Zach Chance and Levine. It will be directed by Danya Taymor.

The original novel was written by S.E. Hinton, who a source claimed Angelina and Vivienne ‘subsequently met with’.

The source added to ET: [S.E. Hinton] was around Vivienne’s age when she wrote the novel.

‘As a result of seeing the show and the conversation with S.E. Hinton, Angelina was inspired to take a role as a lead producer for the upcoming launch on Broadway.’

The film told the story of ‘the Greasers’ and ‘the Socials’ two rival teen gangs in rural Oklahoma, whose way of life falls apart following a violent brawl which ends in a fatality.

Angelina released a statement earlier this month, which said: ‘I hope to be able to contribute while continuing to learn from this amazing team, who I have been working with since my daughter brought me to see the show at La Jolla Playhouse.

‘I can’t begin to express how excited I am for this musical to make its Broadway debut and look forward to sharing this new adaptation of The Outsiders with the world.’
