Scottish singer Susan Boyle, who became a cultural fixture in 2009 thanks to her gorgeous voice that was showcased via reality TV, will have her life turned into a stage musical.
I Dreamed a Dream, named after the title of the song she sang on Britain's Got Talent, which made her an overnight star, will tour internationally from 2012 after premiering at Theater Royal in Newcastle, England, on March 23rd.
"I never thought my life story would end up on the stage but a lot has happened in two years and it is a very exciting prospect," said Su Bo.
"I hope everyone enjoys the show and I promise there will be a few surprises along the way," she added in a statement.
Boyle will be played by actress Elaine Smith, best known for her role in the British comedy series Rab C Nesbitt. Su Bo is reportedly a fan of Smith, as well. So it's a copasetic casting.
