The Bee Gees Are Getting Their Own Stage Musical
publish date: 2017-11-08
The Bee Gees, comprised of brothers Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb, are among the world’s best-selling music artists of all time. The singing siblings rose to fame in the ‘60s and ‘70s and saw global success with hits such as "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart," "Too Much Heaven," "Nights On Broadway" and "Stayin’ Alive." The Bee Gees’ entire publishing and recorded music catalogs are represented exclusively through Universal Music Publishing Group, Capitol Records and Universal Music Enterprises.
Universal Theatrical Group is the film studio’s newly-rebranded live theatre division which includes Universal Stage Productions (Wicked, Billy Elliot, Bring It On: The Musical) and DreamWorks Theatricals (Shrek The Musical).
The new Bee Gees project follows the success of other traditional bio-musicals, including Jersey Boys and Beautiful: The Carole King Musical. Most recently, Gloria Estefan's life and music were developed into On Your Feet!, and upcoming bio-musicals include new shows based on the careers and songs of Donna Summer, Tina Turner and Cher.
