Savatage Working On Gutter Musical
There is to be a Broadway musical based on Savatage’s 1989 album Gutter Ballet.This is currently being worked on by band vocalist Jon Oliva and producer Paul O’Neill, who hope to have it ready in the next two years.
O’Neill actually began working on the songs in the 1970s, with Savatage providing the outlet for hard rock versions of these via the original album.
“We want to take it back to the original blues, gospel, Motown sound,” O’Neill told thenewstar.com. “For Savatage, you’ve got to metal it up. Jon and I are kind of psyched to be doing it because Broadway is something we’ve always wanted to take on.”
