Elton John is working on a Broadway musical targeted for children. The singer and his partner David Furnish just became parents for the second time, welcoming son Elijah. They are also parents to Zachary, 2, who was born via the same gestational surrogate as Elijah. Zachary's godmother is Lady Gaga. Fab, right? Everything Sir Elton does is amazing.
Now, he's got a musical for kids on his radar. Furnish said, "Later this year we begin filming Rocketman, a biopic of Elton's early life. Towards the end of the year, we are also planning to open a children's musical on Broadway."
Details on the children's musical are unknown. Sir Elton does have history with the Great White Way. He scored Billy Elliot the Musical and created tracks for Disney movie The Lion King, which was adapted into a theater show.
