True Blood: The Musical -- Will the HBO Drama Sink Its Fangs Into Broadway?

True Blood The Musical

The fanged fatales of Bon Temps have turned maiming and killing into a fine art — but can they sing?

That’s what we’ll find out if True Blood composer Nathan Barr‘s dreams of a musical based on the HBO series ever become a reality.

“This was something that I pitched to HBO and [creator] Alan Ball,” Barr told the Associated Press on Tuesday at the show’s Season 7 premiere in Los Angeles.

Barr said his proposed True Blood musical would revolve around Sookie — somewhere, Pam is rolling her eyes — and her life as a vampire-loving telepath, noting that he’s “really going to try to return to the roots of the show.”

Though Barr hopes to workshop his musical in a year’s time, he hasn’t spoken with anyone about actually bringing the show to Broadway. Yet.

[Editor’s note: Before you get all up in arms about how crazy this sounds, just remember there’s currently a musical about Rocky on Broadway — and it’s huge.]

    I thought for a moment they were going to incorporate a musical episode into the final season… Thank God they’re not…

  2. Anja says:

    I honestly think that’s a terrible idea..

  3. Thea says:

    Because Lestat turned out so well… And Dracula… And Dance of the Vampires… When will people learn that bloodsuckers on stage will not lead to success?

  4. Ms Thing says:

    Dance of The Vampires.
    Vampire-themed musicals suck.

    If it was a reimagining in the form of a movie, sure… But a stage production? No thanks.
