A new jukebox musical based on the music of The Rolling Stones is quietly being workshopped in London, according to The Sun. The show’s creators, who remain unnamed, have nearly six decades of hits to draw from, including “You Can’t Always Get What You Want,” “Gimme Shelter,” “Sympathy for the Devil,” “Paint It Black,” and “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.”

Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, and Ronnie Wood will have final approval on the musical, which would prove lucrative for the band, who own rights to the majority of their musical catalogue dating back to their formation in 1962.

No word yet on whether it will follow the format of the hit bio-musicals Jersey Boys and Beautiful: The Carole King Musical or place the songs into an original story in the same manner as Mamma Mia! and American Idiot.

The Sun speculates that the show will originate in London, with a strong potential for a Broadway transfer.
