Nowhere Boy A Musical About John Lennon

Nowhere Boy A Musical About John Lennon

A new musical play about the early life of John Lennon, Nowhere Boy, is being developed for the stage, it has been announced by producers Brian and Dayna Lee of AF Creative Media, and Robyn Goodman and Josh Fiedler of Aged in Wood.  

The play is inspired by the 2009 British biopic John Lennon, Nowhere Boy, about Lennon’s adolescence in Liverpool, his complex relationships with his aunt Mimi Smith, who raised him, and his mother Julia Lennon, who abandoned him as a child.  The story depicts his discovery of music and the creation of his first band, the Quarrymen with a young Paul McCartney. 

The film included Lennon’s song “Mother,” songs from his early years with The Quarrymen, including “In Spite of All the Danger” and the music that inspired Lennon such as Screamin’ Jay Hawkins’ “I Put a Spell on You” and Buddy Holly’s “That’ll Be the Day.”  

The film Nowhere Boy was produced by Ecosse Films, Douglas Rae and Robert Bernstein, producers.  Kristen Scott Thomas portrayed Mimi Smith, and Anne-Marie Duff played Lennon’s mother.  Aaron Taylor-Johnson played John Lennon.  

The producing team states that Nowhere Boy will debut in the U.K., with a target opening date to be announced.
