Pat Benatar and husband/guitarist Neil Giraldo are prepping their first stage production, titled, Invincible The Musical. The musical, which “reimagines Shakespeare's Romeo And Juliet for the 21st century,” features a book by Bradley Bredeweg and direction by Scott Schwartz. Invincible The Musical will be running invitation-only industry readings in L.A. on November 10th, 11th, and 12th. The show takes its title from Benatar's 1985 Top Ten hit.
Broadway.com reported, “This new musical explores how love and equality battle for survival in times of great transformation. The star-crossed lovers meet in the modern, war-torn metropolis of Verona as the newly elected Chancellor Paris vows to destroy the progressive resistance and return the city to its traditional roots. Through Benatar and Giraldo’s rock anthems and new songs, Invincible The Musical imagines peace in a divided world.”
