Bruce Lee Musical To Hit Broadway

Martial arts superstar BRUCE LEE is set to be the subject of a new Broadway, New York City, musical featuring music provided by DAVID BOWIE. Theatre bosses want the show to be ready to premiere in 2008. According to Variety.com, Tony Award-winner DAVID HENRY HWANG has been hired to write the musical and MATTHEW WACHUS is reportedly onboard to direct. Bowie has been linked to project because he was recently spotted chatting with Wachus in Toronto, Canada - where Wachus is poised to launch his new THE LORD OF THE RINGS musical. The Bruce Lee musical follows hot in the footsteps of plans for a musical based on kung fu movie CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON.
