Paul McCartney is writing his first level musical, an adaptation of the vintage film “It is a Superb Existence.”
The ex-Beatle is participating with “Billy Elliot” playwright Lee Corridor and West Finish manufacturer Invoice Kenwright.
McCartney stated he’d by no means regarded as writing a musical, however after assembly Kenwright and Corridor 3 years in the past, “discovered myself considering this may well be fascinating and amusing.”
Corridor stated McCartney’s “wit, emotional honesty and melodic brilliance brings a complete new intensity and breadth to the vintage story.”
Frank Capra’s 1946 movie tells the tale of George Bailey, a small-town banker wracked with remorseful about who’s proven the worth of his existence through a mum or dad angel.
Manufacturers stated Thursday they’re aiming for a overdue 2020 release for the display. Its dates and venue have no longer been launched.
