Elton John to write AIDS musical

eltonjohn3Looks like Elton John plans to write an AIDS musical.  EJ says that the production is “about a guy on Broadway who is gay, has HIV and AIDS, and has to go back and face his wife and kids that he left”.   Remarkably he adds “It’s very funny.  The premise doesn’t sound funny, but it is.  Alright?”

I love this – when asked about his attitude regarding musicals in general, he responds:

I’m quite fussy about it. I don’t really like them unless I’m involved in them, for some reason.

Can anyone say “ego”?
