The 2009 John Lennon biopic Nowhere Boy is being adapted as a musical for the theatre stage.
Based on a book written by the late Beatles half-sister Julia Baird, the film Nowhere Boy depicted Lennon’s teenage years and starred Aaron Johnson as the musician. Kristin Scott Thomas, David Morrissey and Anne-Marie Duff also starred, while Sam Taylor-Wood made her directorial debut with the movie.
Nowhere Boy is now set to become a stage musical. According to Deadline, the project is currently in the early stages of development after producing partners Brian and Dayna Lee (of AF Creative Media) and Robyn Goodman and Josh Fiedler (of Aged in Wood) acquired the rights to the biopic.
The musical will largely follow the narrative that was set out in the original film, which focused on the Quarrymen-era Lennon and the relationships he had with his mother, Julia Lennon, and Julia’s older sister, Mimi Smith. Producer Dayna Lee said that, as was the case with the movie, this focus on Lennon’s aunt and mother will depict “two very different women, very powerful in different ways.”
