Hasselhoff To Star In His Own Musical
BAYWATCH star DAVID HASSELHOFF is jetting off to Australia to appear in a stage production based on his life. DAVID HASSELHOFF: THE MUSICAL will include segments inspired by THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS, KNIGHT RIDER and the songs of TEDDY PENDERGRASS. The show, which is opening in Melbourne, will feature dancers taken from established musicals CHICAGO and JEKYLL + HYDE. The American actor says, "I am also doing a heart-rendering set on my life and the mistakes I have made .It sounds like a bad joke, but it is really going to be a good show. Totally campy. It's written by the same people who wrote BETTE MIDLER's show and produced by the people who produced Chicago in London." Hasselhoff is hoping that the stage show will eventually reach American audiences. He says, "If it ends up in Vegas, how great would that be? I want to entertain people. SAMMY DAVIS JR was my hero."
