Stephen King, John Mellencamp doing musical

Posted on

(FROM AP) ? Stephen King has written the script for Ghost Brothers of Darkland County, a stage musical scored by John Mellencamp. The production will open at Atlanta’s Alliance Theatre in April 2009 with the aim of an eventual Broadway run. The production is being described by the theater as ”a sultry Southern gothic mystery with a blues-tinged, guitar-driven score.” The story is about the deaths of two brothers and a young girl and the legend that grows out of the tragedy. The concept came from Mellencamp, who said he heard the tale years ago in his hometown of Seymour, IN. (AP via Yahoo!)
