A SEATTLE THEATER IS CURRENTLY DEVELOPING A GRUNGE MUSICAL THAT COULD FEATURE SONGS FROM SOME OF THE GENRE’S MOST ICONIC ARTISTS, INCLUDING NIRVANA, SOUNDGARDEN AND ALICE IN CHAINS. ACCORDING TO ROLLING STONE, THE SEATTLE REPERTORY THEATRE HAS COMMISSIONED THE PROJECT, WHICH WILL FEATURE AN ORIGINAL STORY ABOUT “A BRILLIANT GRUNGE MUSICIAN AND THE RIVAL WHO MAY HAVE KILLED HIM.” THE MUSICAL TAKES PLACE IN SEATTLE IN THE EARLY ’90S. THE SHOW IS STILL IN THE EARLY STAGES, WITH A TITLE, CASTING AND PREMIERE DATE YET TO BE CONFIRMED. BUT THE PRODUCTION WILL HAVE ACCESS TO THE BMG PUBLISHING CATALOG, WHICH INCLUDES ALBUMS FROM NIRVANA, SMASHING PUMPKINS, SOUNDGARDEN AND MORE. FINAL APPROVAL FROM THE RIGHTS HOLDERS WILL STILL BE NEEDED FOR THE SONG TO BE INCLUDED.
