According to the New York Post, there is a True Blood musical in the works. Nothing has been confirmed, but the Post has a fair bit of concrete-sounding information about the project:
"Director Pam MacKinnon, who barely survived the fiasco that was “China Doll,” recently staged a workshop here. The cast included Ellen Foley (of TV’s “Night Court”), Claybourne Elder (Broadway’s “Bonnie & Clyde”) and Ann Harada (“Avenue Q”). The music is by Nathan Barr, who scored the TV series it’s based on; YA fiction author Elizabeth Scott (who wrote the novel “Living Dead Girl”) is writing the book and lyrics, and I hear Alan Ball, who created the TV show, is keeping an eye on the stage version.Apparently, vampire musicals don't do all that well on Broadway, but maybe all the sweaty nudity will help?
These are early days, but sources say the musical needs cutting: Act 1 was almost 132 pages."
