Courtney Love Is Serious About Cobain’s Musical



Widow of Kurt Cobain, Courtney Love, is thinking about turning her late husband’s life story into a Broadway musical.

During an interview given to NME magazine, which marked the 20th anniversary of Cobain’s death later in April, Courtney revealed that she and their daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, agreed to find the right people and develop the project.

The rock star said, “After being swarmed by tons of Nirvana fan mail and social media posts pushing for a musical to become a reality, both Frances 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.

Nevertheless, it won’t happen any time soon.

As she said, “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 theatre with her will be the most emotional experience of our lives.”

Nirvana’s frontman was found dead in his Seattle, Washington home on April 8th, 1994.

During the last years of his life, Cobain struggled with heroin addiction, illness and depression.
