The ultimate jukebox musical is just a summer away. According to a open casting call posted on Twitter on Tuesday (July 31), producers are casting for a musical in the "final stages of development," that is being created with legendary songwriter/producer Max Martin. "The musical uses his incredible catalogue of songs as inspiration," reads the call, citing Martin's legendary roster of hits written for the likes of Adele, Britney Spears, Katy Perry, The Backstreet Boys, Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, Justin Timberlake, P!nk, Robyn and The Weeknd.
The notice says that the show is being created by Martin, with orchestration and arrangements by Bill Sherman, who collaborated with Lin-Manuel Miranda on In The Heights, and a story from David West Read (The Performers). A spokesperson for Martin could not be reached for comment at press time.
