From Barbary Lane to Broadway

A stage musical version of Armistead Maupin's beloved Tales of the Cityhas been rumored about for some time now, and now it appears to be a bit closer to reality: Jake Shears, lead singer of the Scissor Sisters, says he is currently writing the show's songs.

Anyone who has heard the group's Bee Gees-esque "I Don't Feel Like Dancing" will agree that Shears is a good choice for the 70's set story.

Perhaps we'll even get a madrigal from Mrs. Madrigal?

UPDATE: The producers, librettist and director of the Tony Award-winning Avenue Q are now attached to this project, with eyes on Broadway for the 2009/2010 season.
