Aussie pop star Kylie Minogue revealed in a recent magazine interview that she is planning to write a musical based on her greatest hits.
The 41-year-old actress and singer is working on the project with William Baker. The pair have collaborated before as Baker worked as Kylie’s stylists and creative director on a number of her tours. Baker also has West End experience having directed the 2007 revival of the musical Rent.
Very little has been revealed about the plot for the new musical, however the singer is adamant it will not be based on her life story, and neither will she take on the lead role as she said: “I’m comfortable because it’s not about my life story; it’s about the interpretation of music.”
The hits of Abba, Queen, and Rod Stewart have all previously been turned into stage musical. Mama Mia, which featured the back catalogue of Abba tracks, was one of the biggest success stories and was even turned into a Hollywood blockbuster starring Meryl Streep. A musical, featuring the hits of 90’s girl band the Spice Girls, is currently in production.
The Australian star is also planning to release a brand new album this July entitled Aphrodite.
