Robbie Williams the Musical?

News is that Old Vic owner Sally Greene who is also involved in Billy Elliott the Musical is pulling together a musical based on the turbulent and troubled  life of  Take That boy band member Robbie Williams. Apparently the search is currently underway for "two Robbies" - presumably one young and the other a current day version.

There was a musical called Never Forget which was based around Take That their songs which went on tour and had a brief  run in the West End in 2008.  An unamed source said  "Robbie is bang up for the musical and thinks it will be a fun production. He loves West End shows and is honoured they will be doing one about his life."  

Maybe there will be a part for musical theatre performer  Jonathan Wilkes (who's currently playing Khashoggi in the tour of We Will Rock You) to play his best friend if he's up for it ...
