Babyshambles frontman Pete Doherty has teamed up with former Libertines bandmate Carl Barat and actor Douglas Hodge to write a musical about the ups and downs of a breakout band. Planned to stage in London's Donmar Warehouse, the show is still in the working stage, and there's no set date on its debut.
Pete and Carl weren't the first musicians to take on writing a musical. Last year, Franz Ferdinand were in talks about writing one about the West End. And Belle and Sebastian have created "God Help the Girl"—set to be filmed next year.
