New Bee Gees jukebox musical in the works?
It’s been confirmed that a new bio-musical about the rise to fame of the Bee Gees is in the works, and could be eyeing a place in the West End.
Universal Theatrical Group is the team behind huge West End musicals such as Wicked and Billy Elliot, and will collaborate with the Bee Gee’s sole surviving member, Barry Gibb, who will be an executive producer on the show.
The as-yet-untitled musical will tell the story of how the pop group spring to fame in the ‘70s with a string of hits including “Stayin’ Alive”, “How Deep is Your Love” and “Night Fever”, all of which we can expect to hear in the show.
While no creative team or details regarding venues of dates have been announced, given the success of similar musicals such as Beautiful: The Carole King Musical and Jersey Boys (as well as the upcoming Tina Turner musical), this is a show we can hope will land in the West End at some point in the coming years.
