Kurt Cobain death anniversary: Musical 'very likely' to happen, says Courtney Love
The Nirvana frontman's widow has hinted at a future Broadway production
Love, 49, told NME that a future production based around the life of her late husband is a strong possibility, particularly because the couple’s daughter Frances is also keen to see it happen.
But the show could only become a reality if "the greatest and most respected writers, producers and directors" were on board, said Love.
"There would have to be a story, and a great story, one that hasn’t been told before,"she continued.
"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."
This Saturday will mark 20 years since the "Smells Like Teen Spirit" singer died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound aged 27.
The US rock band are also due to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next week by REM’s Michael Stipe.
