If you’ve been desperately missing Nashville since it went off the air last year, we’ve got some great news for you. The country music-themed series is being transformed into a Broadway musical with a brand-new score!
Ten-time Tony-nominated producer Scott Delman is in charge of this exciting project and he’s convinced it’s going to be a success story. Nashville has everything he’s looking for in a great theatrical source material, including complex, relatable characters and sweeping emotional story.
Nashville is the latest in ae long series of Lionsgate properties to be adapted into a Broadway musical, but Delman believes there’s something special that sets it apart from the previous concert-style stage productions.
“[Nashville will] deliver Broadway’s first score of true contemporary country music – a genre that has exploded with mainstream audiences in recent years. Lionsgate has a treasure-trove of sterling IP, and I’m honored to be a part of this new phase of their live entertainment division,” explained the producer.
