Gary Barlow Will Fly from Neverland to Around the World

first_img Additional details about the project, including a timeline, book writer and director, have yet to be announced. The show is based on the adventure novel of the same name by French author Jules Verne. It follows Phileas Fogg, a Londoner who, after a bet with his friends, attempts to circumnavigate the entire globe in—you guessed it—eighty days with his valet Passepartout. Scherzinger, along with stage and screen favorite and upcoming Late Late Show host James Corden, will join Barlow at film honcho Harvey Weinstein’s pre-Oscar dinner ceremony on February 20 to perform five numbers from the new tuner. Rita Ora will also be in attendance and will perform the number “Play,” which she recorded for Neverland’s forthcoming concept album. Weinstein is the executive producer behind Finding Neverland and is also attached to Around the World in Eighty Days. Gary Barlow may be bringing the second star to the right to Broadway this spring with Finding Neverland, but he already has yet another project up his sleeves that will take him to even more fanciful locales. According to the Daily Mail, the Take That singer-turned musical theater composer is at work on a musical version of Around the World in Eighty Days, collaborating with his Neverland partner Eliot Kennedy. Pussycat Doll and West End Grizabella Nicole Scherzinger is on board during the show’s early developmental stages.center_img View Commentslast_img read more
