Paul McCartney curtsey of Columbia Records

Sir Paul McCartney has been writing a new musical, of the 1946 Frank Capra classic film “It’s A Wonderful Life”. Producer Bill Kenwright, marks the 77-year-old musician first theatrical venture.

“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.”

Hall, who co-wrote Billy Elliot: The Musical, is writing the book and co-writing the lyrics with McCartney.

McCartney has done 10 demo tracks, with the singer performing every role from George Bailey to Mr. Potter.


Andrew Lloyd Webber announced his contemporary musical version of Cinderella, with a book by The Crown actress/Killing Eve writer Emerald Fennell, will arrive on Broadway next year. Lloyd Webber has written with lyrics by David Zippel (Hercules, City of Angels). The new Cinderella has the title heroine falling in love with a man named Sebastian after Prince Charming has his own fling with a duke.

The musical received an industry presentation in London with a cast that included Carrie Hope Fletcher as Cinderella, Tyrone Huntley as Sebastian and Jonny Fines as Prince Charming, along with Gary Wilmot, Ruthie Henshall, Victoria Hamilton-Barritt, Sophie Isaacs, and Rebecca Trehearn. Broadway producers and theater owners attended the workshop.

His musical Cats being filmed by Universal stars James Corden, Judi Dench, Jason Derulo, Idris Elba, Jennifer Hudson, Ian McKellen, Taylor Swift, Rebel Wilson and Francesca Hayward.
