Stones Headed To Theater Stage? 

The Rolling Stones may be headed to London's West End and New York's Broadway. Not for a series of intimate shows, but to create a musical based on their catalog.

The Sun reports that top-secret workshops are under way. The paper quotes a source who says, "The workshops are being kept very much under wraps and only incredible ­talent is being invited to attend. The idea came from top ­theater execs who know the concept of a Stones musical has the potential to be a worldwide hit. But they know the show has to be outstanding for the band members to back it. Only then will it ever see the light of day -- and at the same time make the rockers an absolute fortune.”

Should this reach the stage, it would follow in the footsteps of The Four Seasons with Jersey Boys, Queenand We Will Rock You, Carole King's Beautiful and ABBA’s Mamma Mia!

A spokeswoman for the Stones was unavailable for comment.
