A Duck Dynasty musical has been given the green light.
According to various reports, a stage production based on the life of the Robertson family will be produced by the company behind Jersey Boys and hit the Rio Hotel Las Vegas in 2015.
Titled The Duck Commander Family Musical, the play will reportedly be based on “The Duck Commander Family: How Faith, Family, and Ducks Built a Dynasty,” a book by Willie and Korie Robertson.
The show will NOT feature anyone in the Robertson family, as actors will portray members of this controversial family, The Hollywood Reporter states.
“It’s gonna be cool and it’ll be another play that people can take their kids to,” Korie Robertson tells Us Weekly “We love to go to musicals when we go to New York…We’re excited!”
The New York Times says the 90-minute, 14-song show will likely open in February and it will address Phil Robertson’s scandalous anti-gay remarks from last year.
In an interview with GQ last year, the patriarch compared homosexuality to bestiality and said African-Americans were happy before the civil rights era.
He was suspended from his family’s series as a result.
“The Robertsons are so unusual, their story so juicy, and theater shouldn’t be limited to telling stories about people you resemble or revere,” producer Michael David, who said he was personally offended by the comments, told the New York Times.
