Paul McCartney Has Been Quietly Writing An ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ Musical
Music legend Paul McCartney announced that he has been working on a musical adaption of the classic 1946 film "It's a Wonderful Life" and fans cannot wait.
Paul McCartney announced, as reported by the New York Post, that over the past year the Beatle has been writing lyrics and music with the playwright Lee Hall for a Broadway music rendition of the classic Frank Capra film, to be produced by Bill Kenwright.
"Writing a musical is not something that had ever really appealed to me," McCartney told the New York Post. "But Bill and I met up with Lee Hall and had a chat and I found myself thinking this could be interesting and fun. ‘It’s A Wonderful Life’ is a universal story we can all relate to."
