Gary Barlow is reportedly working on a musical to be performed on the West End and he will be drawing on his past experiences, which could include work with Take That, his solo career and maybe even his time on The X Factor.
Barlow has joined forces with business partner Eliot Kennedy and the pair have been thrashing out ideas as to the direction of the musical, the Mirror reports.
The band’s songs have previously been used on the West End stage for the 2008 production of Never Forget and since then the band has reformed and brought a wide range of new material that fans of the group have absolutely loved.
Barlow is currently residing in his Los Angeles studio working on new tracks, as well as potential material for the musical, so fans may not have to wait long until they have some dates to book london boutique hotels for to see this staging.
Work on the musical could be delayed by a few months if he takes a lucrative offer to go on a solo tour this year.
An insider close to the singer told the newspaper: “Gary’s the happiest he’s ever been in his career right now and loves being given the freedom to write music and take on different projects.
“He’s really pleased that the musical has come to light and has loads of ideas to make it a West End hit. He’s also being made some very attractive offers to do another solo tour this year.”
Barlow has been a man in demand in the last few years and he played a big part in last year’s Diamond Jubilee concert for the queen, which took place on the Mall.
