Novelist Stephen King and rock star John Mellencamp have teamed up for a musical called Ghost Brothers of Darkland County. Atlanta’s The Alliance Theater will produce the show.
Here’s more from Billboard.com: “King’s story is based on the real 1957 deaths of two brothers and a young girl. Mellencamp is in charge of the ‘roots and blues-tinged score.’ The Alliance’s artistic director Susan V. Booth will direct and legendary producer T-Bone Burnett will provide musical direction.”
The video embedded above shows King playing guitar at Mellencamp show. The musical is scheduled for a six-week run in 2012 from April 4th to May 13th. Would you go see it?
