Singer Sir Elton John wants to bring Broadway to the kids. The Rocketman hitmaker is working on a musical play which is targeted at children.
Sir Elton John Producing Kids Broadway Show
This latest musical ambition must have something to do with his own growing family. John and life partner David Furnish recently adopted a baby boy, Elijah. They already have an older son, Zachary, who is just 2. That must be one busy home! And very likely the inspiration for the children’s musical too.
Furnish revealed that in addition to focussing on family this year, the couple would also be starting work on an autobiographical film of John as well as producing the kids’ musical.
So far, we have no other details of the project. But if John’s previous stage work is anything to go by – all the music for the theatre version of Billy Elliot and adapted versions of his most famous songs from the animated movie The Lion King – we’re confident the show will be a must-see.
