Pat Benatar and her guitar playing husband Neil Giraldo are working on a musical, The Romeo and Juliet Project.
The synopsis reads: "The Romeo & Juliet Project re-imagines the story of our star-crossed lovers using the power of Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo’s music to remind us what happens when we forget the impact of love, equality and acceptance. The show brings the audience into the modern, war-torn metropolis of Verona as the newly minted Chancellor Paris takes control and promises to return the city to its traditional roots and destroy the progressive resistance. This new musical is an intricate weaving of Benatar’s and Giraldo’s deeply emotional rock anthems and new songs, exploring the question – what does it take to regain a world where peace is possible?"
The musical had its first readings on Friday and Saturday in Sag Harbor, New York.
