David Beckham – The Musical

The life of international soccer star DAVID BECKHAM is set to be turned into a musical on London's West End.

MARK ARCHER'S production, David Beckham - The Theatre of Dreams, will be played out to a gospel-rock soundtrack.

It will tell the story of former England captain Beckham's relationships with his parents and wife VICTORIA - and chart his many struggles and triumphs on the soccer pitch.

Archer says, "Beckham's story is a modern-day fairytale of heroes, villains, love, and what it means to lead your country.

"His rise from obscurity to international stardom, his universally acknowledged gifts as a supreme sportsman, and his Hollywood lifestyle all have the elements of an aspirational fable."

Archer is still awaiting Beckham's approval before the musical enters production.
