Courtney Love says she now wants a Nivana musical to happen. There was talk in 2012 about a musical about the band, and Kurt Cobain and Love's life together, but the Hole singer ended up shooting that down rather quickly.
Apparently she's had a change of heart, because in a new interview for NME to mark 20 years since Cobain's death, Love says, "After being swarmed by tons of Nirvana fanmail and social media posts pushing for a musical to become a reality, both Frances [Bean Cobain] and I have thought long and hard, and agreed that if we can reach up to the highest shelf and select a team of the greatest and most respected writers, producers and directors, then a Broadway musical is very likely to happen."
Love adds, "There would have to be a story, and a great story, one that hasn't been told before. I would devote countless hours with an A-team to create a project that reflects Kurt in the most respectful but honest way possible, so that his story, his music and his legacy can be resurrected on stage for not only the world to see, but more importantly for our daughter to see. I know her father's spirit will be on that stage, and sitting in that theater with her will be the most emotional experience of our lives."
Don't hold your breath for this one, though. The last we heard about Courtney's relationship with Frances Bean came in November, when Courtney sued her old lawyer for driving a wedge between them. And since Frances, not Courtney, controls the publicity rights to Kurt's name and image, the two would have to make nice before this idea could move forward.
