Disco supergroup EARTH, WIND + FIRE are set to become the latest act to have their hits immortalised in a new stage musical. The BOOGIE WONDERLAND hitmakers are working with choreographer MAURICE HINES to create a storyline and dance moves for new project HOTT FEET.

EWF star MAURICE WHITE says, "The story is basically about a young girl who purchases a pair of red shoes she sees in the window of a store, and the emotional things the shoes take her through as she's trying to make it."

White has offered FAME star Debbie Allen's dancer daughter VIVIAN NIXON the lead role in his new hits-inspired show, which will start rehearsals in the New Year (05).

EWF join a long line of acts who have had their hits turned into a musical - Queen, Abba, Genesis, Bee Gees, Rod Stewart and Fleetwood Mac.
