A new Broadway musical inspired by the songs of Kate Nash is in the works.
Titled Only Gold, the stage show will feature songs from Nash’s three albums to date: 2007’s ‘Made Of Bricks’, 2010’s ‘My Best Friend Is You’ and this year’s ‘Girl Talk’.
The musical is being helmed by Tony Award-winning choreographer and director Andy Blankenbuehler, who has recently worked on a Broadway revival of Annie. Discussing Only Gold with the Evening Standard, Nash said: “It is a really interesting story about a maharajah in Paris in the twenties, and is about making the choice between love and superficial things.” Nash then added that she hopes the show will eventually be brought to London.
Meanwhile, Nash will embark on an eight-date UK tour next month, beginning in Norwich on October 10 and taking in dates in Birmingham, London, Cardiff, Dublin, Belfast and Glasgow before wrapping up in Manchester on October 19.
