Prince’s Music Catalogue Might Arrive On A Stage Near You
Prince leaves behind a music legacy beyond the imagination, and as we know, he has “vaults full of music” which according to his manager Charles Koppelman, could be unveiled to the world in the form of a Broadway musical or a Cirque Du Soleil production.
The Los Angeles Times reports that Bremer Trust, the bank that handled Prince’s estate before his passing in late April, revealed that L. Londell McMillan and Charles A. Koppelman “will be working to monetize both released and unreleased music from the artist’s reportedly voluminous vault” in the form of a stage production.
Koppelman said that in the vein of other music icons, they are looking into the possibility of creating “either a jukebox-style Broadway show a la “Jersey Boys” or a Cirque du Soleil-style Las Vegas production akin to the Beatles’ “Love” or “Michael Jackson: One.”
“Prince was an icon on the level of The Beatles and Michael Jackson, and his legacy should be honored,” he said. “Though his name was Prince, I always thought he was the king of music.”
