Nothing is safe from musical theatre...
A musical about the grunge scene in Seattle in the 1990s has been commissioned by the Seattle Repertory Theatre.
The songs for this project will be drawn from a publishing catalog owned by BMG. This means the show’s creators will have access to music from Smashing Pumpkins and Alice In Chains too. Janet Billig Rich, a former manager of Nirvana, is tied to development of this musical project.
The story will follow a prodigious grunge musician and the rival who may have murdered him. Further details about the stage project are currently unknown.
The band tracked their first studio demo in Seattle. The demo featured drum performances from Dale Crover of The Melvins. The following day, Nirvana posted up in an empty RadioShack to record a music video.
Grunge has been a hot topic online this year since the tragic passing of Soundgarden and Audioslave member, Chris Cornell.
