Kylie musical set for 2012

Show will probably run in London's West End

Kylie Minogue has confirmed that a musical featuring songs from throughout her career and based on her life, will hit the stage next year, most probably in London.

The Australian performer is currently working on ideas for the show with her collaborator and stylist William Baker.

“It’s definitely happening,” said Kylie to Ireland’s Evening Echo. “We’ve brought a scriptwriter in and are working on a few synopses.”

However, Kylie admits that it might not be easy to impress the UK’s foremost theatre minds.

“Music critics are one thing but theatre critics are something else. I suppose if it doesn’t work then that’s it – it’s a closed book.”

Kylie is currently on the US leg of her world tour.
