Pharrell Is Producing a Musical Based on His Childhood
Pharrell is known for a lot of things throughout the music world but what he’s about to do is something new and creative. The iconic musician is producing a musical based on his childhood growing up in Virginia.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Pharrell’s pitch to FOX to produce a musical based on his own life has been confirmed. Atlantis is going to be the name of the musical and it will be described and portrayed like a Romeo and Juliet story but with more detail inspired by Pharrell’s childhood in Virginia Beach.
The musical will take on a few other partners as Pharrell has teamed up with a lot of heavy hitters to help him bring this musical to life. Gil Netter helped Pharrell create the story and also helped him pitch it to FOX. Michael Mayer, a Tony Award winner who has multiple well-known Broadway plays, is set to direct the childhood inspired piece. Mimi Valdes is also collaborating with Pharrell as his co-producer. There’s no set release date at this time.
In other news, the multi-talented Pharrell was just featured on Mike Will Made-It’s recently released album Ransom 2 with a song called “Aries (YuGo).” Just Blaze also named him the greatest producer ever in a recent Q&A session he had with his fans via Reddit.
