Mellencamp and King Craft Musical

What happens when you ask rocker John Mellencamp and author Stephen King to collaborate on a project? Apparently, what you end up with is a musical... of the understandably (or, at least, unsurprisingly) Gothic kind.

The Ghost Brothers of Darkland County, “a riveting Southern gothic musical,” will run at Atlanta’s Alliance Theatre from April 4th to May 13th of 2012.

According to Artist Direct, “King’s story is based on the real 1957 deaths of two brothers and a young girl. Mellencamp is crafting the ‘roots and blues-tinged score,’” while T-Bone Burnett provides musical direction.
