Elton John has excelled in scoring Disney’s The Lion King, Aida and creating his own London and Broadway hit in Billy Elliot. Now he is partnering with Britain’s Old Vic Productions for a series of original musicals.
According to TheStage.co.uk, Elton will be the majority investor of Rocket Stage, a new entity that will also hold the rights to make a movie version of Billy Elliot and Elton’s other previous theatrical productions.
One of the shows being considered is a jukebox musical, or as the story calls it, “a new family show that will feature songs from Elton’s back catalog.”
I would assume if his productions become hits in the UK, the likelihood of each crossing the big pond to DFW, is high. Great to know Elton continues expanding his talents with new projects and staying fresh.
