Broadway might be smelling like teen spirit! The Kurt Cobain bio-musical, which was reported to be in the works before the idea was quickly squashed by the late musician’s wife Courtney Love, is back on. Love spoke with NME as part of the magazine’s tribute to the Nirvana frontman and said that if she could get the right people involved "then a Broadway musical is very likely to happen."
Why did Love change her tune? She revealed that she had been "swarmed by tons of Nirvana fanmail and social media posts pushing for a musical to become a reality." The key to the production getting off the ground? Love said that “there would have to be a story, and a great story, one that hasn’t been told before.”
Nirvana formed in 1987 and went on to establish itself as one of the most famous grunge bands in the world, releasing a number of successful songs like “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” “Heart-Shaped Box,” “About A Girl,” “Come As You Are” and “Lithium.” Love has been embroiled in several legal battles with the surviving members of the band over song rights.
