The Bee Gees are getting back into the spotlight – literally.
Universal Pictures and Barry Gibb, a co-founder of the band, are collaborating to make Bee Gees a live musical for all to experience the trio of brothers’ rise to fame being performed on stage.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Barry Gibb is excited “to be a part of the creative process with Yvonne Gibb [Maurice Gibb’s widow] and Dwina [Robin Gibb’s widow].”
He has also stated that was a great “chance to throw the spotlight on all my brothers and finally the real story of us will be told.”
This new Bee Gees collaboration project may not be the last. Following the previous marketable successes of Jersey Boys and Beautiful: The Carole King Musical, biographical musicals have become a very lucrative investment. (ezr/kes)
