ZZ Top has announced a new jukebox musical titled Sharp Dressed Man is in the works for 2020.
It’s an “outrageous, bawdy musical romp” and includes hits like “La Grange,” “Legs,” and “Gimme All Your Lovin'” Variety reported. Members of the band, Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill and Frank Beard are the show’s executive producers.
“We’re feeling very good about the efforts of our producers and our manager Carl Stubner in putting this together,” Gibbons said. “Our music is in very capable hands, so we’re really looking forward to seeing the results of these collective efforts next year. … Fans have often told us that we’ve provided the soundtrack to their lives, and this is very much in line with that kind of enthusiastic thinking.”
The show follows the story of a Robin Hood like vehicle mechanic, “stealing hearts and car parts – with the help of a merry band of beer guzzlers and hell raisers.” The show is written by Robert Cary and Jonathan Tolins, who wrote the Grease Live! show, and Co-producer Prem Akkaraju says that the “Texas version of the Robin Hood story delivers countless laugh-out-loud moments. … It’s an absolute blast.”
More details about the show will be revealed soon!
