"Our news now turns to a darkened theatre stage, as Johnny Marr recently confirmed through his official website that both he and Morrissey have given their thumbs-up to the long-rumored musical based around seminal british pop band The Smiths. Written by fans Andrew Wale and Perrin Manzer Allen, the musical is set to feature 20 Smiths songs performed by a string quartet, with vocal and acting duties handled by a cast of six. The show is tentatively going under the title "Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others", and associate producer Michael Brazier offered the following preview of what to expect.
'It is not a linear story. There will be action going on stage-- whether its dance or movement or acting without words depends on the scene. Sometimes the song-- and what the singer is saying in the song-- will be the main line of action. But other times when you are concentrating on the singer, out of the corner of your eye you will be seeing impressionistic goings-on elsewhere on the stage. The significance of that [action] will become clear later. The meaning of these clues will gradually reveal themselves.'
