The Bee Gees

We're frankly amazed that this hasn't happened already, but a Bee Gees musical is on its way.

Universal Pictures' theatre division is currently working on a new stage production based on the life story and the music of the Gibb brothers.

Barry Gibb has given his blessing to the project, and will act as an executive producer.

A deal has been struck with Barry, Maurice's wife Yvonne and Robin's estate for the rights to the band's life story and music. The musical will tell the story of the trio's success and hits including 'Stayin' Alive' and 'Nights on Broadway'.

Universal has previously worked on highly successful musicals including Wicked and Billy Elliot, so the project is in good hands.

Sadly, there's no official title for the musical yet, or which songs may feature, or whether it will launch in the UK or US. But, we're excited!
