Courtney Love is in the early stages of turning her late husband Kurt Cobain’s life story into a Broadway musical.

In a new NME magazine article to mark the 20th anniversary of the Nirvana star’s death later this month, the rocker has revealed she and her daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, have agreed to develop the project if they get the right people involved.

She says, “After being swarmed by tons of Nirvana fan mail and social media posts pushing for a musical to become a reality, both Frances and I have thought long and hard and agreed that if we can reach up to the highest shelf and select a team of the greatest and most respected writers, producers and directors, then a Broadway musical is very likely to happen.”

But the musical won’t come together in a hurry.

Love adds, “There would have to be a story, and a great story, one that hasn’t been told before. I would devote countless hours with an A-team to create a project that reflects Kurt in the most respectful but honest way possible, so that his story, his music and his legacy can be resurrected on stage for not only the world to see, but more importantly for our daughter to see.

“I know her father’s spirit will be on that stage, and sitting in that theatre with her will be the most emotional experience of our lives.”

Cobain was found dead at his home in Seattle, Washington on April 8, 1994.
