A musical about the grunge scene in Seattle in the 1990s has been commissioned by the Seattle Repertory Theatre.
As Variety report, the musical will tell a fictional story but will feature pre-existing songs from bands of that era. Notably Nirvana and Soundgarden.
The songs for this project will be drawn from a publishing catalog owned by BMG. This means the show’s creators will have access to music from Smashing Pumpkins and Alice In Chains too. Janet Billig Rich, a former manager of Nirvana, is tied to development of this musical project.
The story will follow a prodigious grunge musician and the rival who may have murdered him.
