The Austin Powers Musical Is Red-Hot in Development, Unbelievably


Tony-winning co-director of The Book of Mormon Casey Nicholaw might sign on to direct the Austin Powers musical currently in development. Burt Bacharach and Elvis Costello are doing the music, and Mike Meyers will write the story, which is a prequel to the movies about “how Powers first acquired his mighty mojo.” This thing has some serious talent attached to it! Look out, Book of Mormon. You’re not the only one who can win Tonys.
