Hit manga Death Note has already been turned into anime, video games, novels, and live-action films. And in 2015, it will become a musical, website NariNari reports. A musical perhaps because they are running out of things to turn Death Note into?
Composer Frank Wildhorn, known for writing Whitney Houston’s “Where Do Broken Hearts Go?” and the Broadway musical Jekyll & Hyde is writing the score, while Jack Murphy is handling the lyrics. Theater director Tamiya Kuriyama is helming the production, which is currently going through casting.
The Death Note musical will also have a run in South Korea in Summer 2015. No word yet about Broadway, Off-Broadway, or any North American theaters in between.
