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.
