Kurt Cobain

Beatriz Lucci: 27, The Musical, where the stories of all the genius and great artists who died at age 27 meet. Book, additional lyrics, arrangements and production by Andrew Lippa. Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain, Amy Winehouse, Jimi Hendrix are just a handful of musicians lost at the age of 27. Tony nominee Lippa took on an era of excess and debauchery in The Wild Party with its driving pop beat. Incorporating these musicians' hits with a fresh contributions by Lippa could make for a really cool show.
