Take That Plan Official Musical
Take That singer GARY BARLOW wants to write an official musical based on the British band's career - and hopes to recruit former band member Robbie Williams for the project.
The boyband, who disbanded in 1996 and reformed in 2005, was the subject of an unauthorised stage production, Never Forget, which launched in London's West End in May (08).
The singers were eager to distance themselves from the musical, which finishes its run in November (08), insisting it had "absolutely and 100 per cent nothing to do with Take That".
But now, frontman Barlow is dreaming of his own version of the hitmakers' rise to fame.
He says, "We have a musical in us and if we can all agree on which bits of the story to include, we'll have a hit show."
And Barlow, 37, is adamant the production won't be the same without contributions from Williams, who left the band in 1995 to launch a solo career.
He adds: "It would be good if Robbie got involved. After all, he is part of the story."
