We have seen him play, we have seen him run, we have seen him naked, we have seen him in wax, we have seen him in Police sunglasses, we have seen him doing cameo in films. As if all of it was not enough, the life of David Beckham (the five people on the planet who do not know who he is, go google him) is set to be turned into a musical that runs on London’s West End.
David Beckham: The Theatre of Dreams will tell the life story of former England captain Beckham, and his relationships with his parents and wife Victoria.
“Beckham’s story is a modern-day fairytale of heroes, villains, love, and what it means to lead your country,” producer Mark Archer said. “His rise from obscurity to international stardom, his universally acknowledged gifts as a supreme sportsman, and his Hollywood lifestyle all have the elements of an aspirational fable.”
The first thought that popped into my head was, “Who would be playing Beckham?” I mean if it were Beckham himself prancing on stage in tights and dancing; that would have be delicious, but whosoever would be enacting that part would need to start working on his abs, I mean seriously.
