A Kurt Cobain musical might actually make it to Broadway, if Courtney Love follows through with plans to produce a show based on the life and songs of her ex-husband. Despite having said in 2012 that "sometimes it's best just to leave things alone", Love - along with her and Cobain's daughter Frances Bean - has told NME that it is now "very likely" that a musical will be staged.
The potential production is, according to Courtney Love, dependent on their ability to "reach up to the highest shelf and select a team of the greatest and most respected writers, producers and directors" and added that they have been persuaded to consider staging the musical based on an outpouring of "Nirvana fanmail" which winged their way on social media.
Love said that this would have to tell a story that "hasn't been told before" and added that the production would "resurrect" her former husband "not only for the world to see, but more importantly for our daughter to see."
A musical based on Love's relationship with Cobain was mooted in 2012 by her manager at the time, Sam Lufti, but Love maintains that she was "bullied" into selling some of the rights to Nirvana's catalogue and the musical never materialised.
Nirvana will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on 10th April, almost 20 years to the day that Kurt Cobain ended his own life at his Seattle home.
