David Beckham: The Musical
Jazz hands for Golden Balls; Beckhams getting his own musical
David Beckham is to be honoured with his own musical. According to reports, a theatre production entitled Theatre of Dreams, based on the life of the football legend-come-world famous beefcake, is being developed for Londons West End. Intriguingly, the production will feature a gospel rock soundtrack, according to songwriter Mark Archer. "Beckhams story is a modern-day fairytale of heroes, villains, love, Manchester United and what it means to lead your country," said Archer. "His rise from obscurity to international stardom, his universally acknowledged gifts as a supreme sportsman and his Hollywood lifestyle, all have the elements of an aspirational fable." But will anyone be interested in this Beckham-based sing-along? Mark Archer certainly thinks so. "With half the world supporting United and the rest worshipping Beckham, says Archer, a musical about the iconic life of the Beckhams would be certain to attract huge attention." The hills are alive, with the sound of Beckham.
