Next to Normal co-creator Brian Yorkey and Grammy Award winner Sting are working on a theatrical re-imagining of the rocker's 1991 album "The Soul Cages," according to Showbiz 411.

In researching the autobiographical piece based on Sting's life, Yorkey has reportedly traveled with the rocker to his hometown of Newcastle, England. Yorkey has reportedly met with Sting's family and visited locations referenced in his songs. Previous reports state that the project is being envisioned as a Broadway venture. Yorkey's representatives did not respond to a request for comment.

Songs on the album include "Mad About You," "All This Time," "Why Should I Cry for You?," "Island of Souls," "Saint Agnes and the Burning Train," "When the Angels Fall," "The Wild Wild Sea," "Jeremiah Blues, Pt. 1," "You and Me" and the title song.

Yorkey earned a Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize for the rock musical Next to Normal, which explores mental illness and its effects on a suburban American family. Tom Kitt penned the score.
