The Beatles’ legendary musician, Paul McCartney posted a new tweet and announced that he is writing his first musical.
Paul also published a recent article and revealed that this musical will be an adaptation of one of the world’s most loved films ‘It’s A Wonderful Life.’
Speaking about this news Paul McCartney said that:
“Like many of these things, this all started with an email. Bill had asked if it was something I might be up for.
Writing a musical is not something that had ever really appealed to me but Bill and I met up with Lee Hall and had a chat and I found myself thinking this could be interesting and fun.‘It’s A Wonderful Life’ is a universal story we can all relate to.”
Bill Kenwright also commented about working with Paul McCartney:
“Working with Paul on “It’s a Wonderful Life” is a dream realised. To be honest I was hooked on first hearing him say “one/two/three/four” on the demo of the opening number! But since then it’s been an extraordinary journey – on every song I experience Paul’s unique gift of melody and composition. It’s musical theatre – but it’s always McCartney.
Paul, Lee, and I use the word “cherish” when we refer to our source material and that’s what we intend to do. Cherish Frank Capra’s creation.”
