Will Dave Stewart and Annie Lennox Create Eurythmics Jukebox Musical?
By Michael Gioia
British musician Dave Stewart, who collaborated with Bruce Joel Rubin and Glen Ballard on the recent Broadway musical Ghost, is considering a stage musical incorporating tunes he wrote with Annie Lennox for the 1980s pop duo Eurythmics.
When asked about reuniting with Lennox, Stewart, who also wrote the score to the musical Barbarella, told Reuters, "We're not talking about a reunion right now, but never say never. Annie and I wrote so many songs together, and they keep popping up in different places, and I have this idea of putting them all together in a theatrical piece in the not too distant future."
Stewart, who released his solo album "The Ringmaster General" this month, won the Grammy Award with Lennox for Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal for "Missionary Man."
Eurythmics hit songs also include "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)," "It's Alright (Baby's Coming Back)," "Love Is a Stranger," "Right By Your Side," "Angel," "I Need a Man" and "Thorn in My Side," among others.
