Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo have become the latest rockers to enter the world of Broadway.
Per Broadway.com, Benatar and Giraldo are contributing music for Invincible The Musical, a new reworking of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. The stage production will feature versions of many of the songs Benatar and Giraldo have written and performed together for over 40 years.
The duo said in a joint statement, “When we first began this musical journey, we had no idea where it would take us. The opportunity to work with such creative and talented artists is inspirational. It’s so exciting to see the songs we’ve performed for 42 years morph and fit so beautifully into the story we’ve always cherished.”
The statement continued, “The recent shutdown allowed us the time to expand this new production into something more extraordinary than we ever imagined. We’re thrilled that live performances have started again, and grateful for the opportunity to showcase ‘Invincible The Musical’ in front of an audience where it belongs.
Broadway.com notes that details related to production timeline and casting are still unknown, as are the songs set to be featured in Invincible The Musical.
