Some of the talent behind Jersey Boys and the record-breaking Hamilton is reportedly involved in bringing disco star’s life and music to the stage.
Just as Broadway’s long-running, singalong hit Jersey Boys is scheduled to close, here comes a sign that perhaps even hotter stuff is in the works – a musical about the life of the undisputed “Queen of Disco”, Donna Summer.
With her global smash songs like Hot Stuff, I Feel Love, Bad Girls and Last Dance enduring as iconic sounds from the dance explosion of the 70s, New York’s theater scene is poised for another dose of glittering disco ball nostalgia.
Some of the talent behind the new project is coming from Jersey Boys itself and the record-breaking Broadway musical success story, Hamilton, according to a report in the New York Post.
The award-winning director Des McAnuff staged a workshop in New York last week of early parts of the nascent show, reportedly titled The Donna Summer Project.
