Bloody Hell: True Blood Might Become A Musical

Theatergoers could soon be treated to The Ballad of Sookie Stackhouse and The Fang-Bang Gang. Or, at least something like it.
Composer Nathan Barr, who wrote the scores for all seven seasons of HBO's True Blood, wants to turn the vampire-and-werewhatever fantasy into a bona fide musical, with a singing Sookie and everything.
Barr recently pitched the idea to show creator Alan Ball and HBO. True Blood's Stephen Moyer even used some of his song-and-dance expertise to help Barr put together the samples.
"There are no guarantees," the composer told The Telegraph during the drama's Hollywood premiere. "But, I think the direction we're heading in is really exciting."
If all goes according to plan, Barr hopes to put on a workshop version of the musical in 2015. In the meantime, you'll have to be content with your fairies and blood-suckers sans songs — the last season premieres on HBO this Sunday, June 22. (The Telegraph)
