Susan Boyle to star in musical of her life story
Susan Boyle is set to take to the stage playing herself in a new musical based on her life story.
The as yet unnamed production will chart the story of the singer's life as a voluntary worker in West Lothian to her meteoric rise to fame after appearing on ITV1's Britain's Got Talent.
Boyle told the Sun: "I want to be doing the music parts, so I'll be coming in and out of the show. I'm looking forward to doing some live work."
The newspaper added that the production is expected to go on a national tour rather than being based solely in the West End.
An insider on the production is quoted as telling the news provider that the show is predicted to be a huge hit, with fans expected to be travelling from around the world to see the I Dreamed A Dream singer perform.
The singer recently released a statement on her website thanking her fans for their ongoing support and helping her new record The Gift to top the charts in the UK and the US.
