Courtney Love Open to the Idea of a Kurt Cobain Broadway Musical
Speaking with NME in a new interview, Love stated, "After being swarmed by tons of Nirvana fan mail and social media posts pushing for a musical to become a reality, both Frances and I have thought long and hard and agreed that if we can reach up to the highest shelf and select a team of the greatest and most respected writers, producers and directors, then a Broadway musical is very likely to happen."
Love went on to add, "There would have to be a story, and a great story, one that hasn't been told before. I would devote countless hours with an A-team to create a project that reflects Kurt in the most respectful but honest way possible, so that his story, his music, and his legacy can be resurrected on stage for not only the world to see, but more importantly for our daughter to see. I know her father's spirit will be on that stage, and sitting in that theater with her will be the most emotional experience of our lives."
Back in 2012, Love's manager Sam Lufti admitted that they were investigating the possibility of staging either a film or stage version dedicated to telling Cobain's story, but a few weeks later, Love ended the speculation, telling The Observer, "There will be no musical. Sometimes it's best just to leave things alone."
