10 musicals we'd like to see before the story of 'Nirvana' on Broadway
So, this happened. While testifying against Britney Spears, manager Sam Lufti revealed he and Courtney Love are working on a "possible motion picture or Broadway musical based on the Nirvana catalogue, based on her life and Kurt Cobain's." It's not a huge leap of logic, as musicians ranging from Green Day to ABBA have all gotten their very own musicals. Still, given Cobain's fears about selling out, this could be problematic at best, and we're a little worried a musical about Kurt and Courtney will come across like "Sid and Nancy" with songs.
But that doesn't mean that there aren't plenty of other acts out there deserving of the Great White Way treatment. Or, if not deserving, maybe they're car wrecks we wouldn't mind seeing. In any case, some existing musicals could even be tweaked slightly to squeeze in a star or two, so development would be a snap! Here are a few suggestions. Producers, take notes!
My Fair Chemical Romance
It's the story of a young man who learns how to dye his hair, wear make-up, let his inner goth fly free and occasionally wear band uniforms just because he wants to.
The King and Psy
Hey, I see a little resemblance to Elvis, don't you? Besides, Psy really is the Elvis of South Korea at this point. And if this photo is any indication, he already has a sort of Vegas Elvis wardrobe going. And we can skip "The King and I" love story, of course.
