Beyonce’s father Mathew Knowles has revealed that he is working on a musical about the rise of Destiny’s Child.
“I want to pull back the curtain,” Knowles said in a statement posted on his website. “I feel it’s time to give the world an opportunity to hear, see and feel the victories and failures that I’ve had as a husband, father and manager who risked everything in pursuit of fulfilling dreams – those of mine and others.”
Knowles and his daughter have not collaborated professionally since 2011, and the singer apparently has no involvement in her father’s stage plans. The musical, according to Mathew Knowles, will be told from his perspective.
The musical titled Survivor: The Destiny’s Child Musical will “bare an honest depiction of the achievements, obstacles, and evolution of the world’s most iconic girl group and the mastermind behind them.” The show is being developed for Broadway and London’s West End and will premiere next year in Houston as the launch of a tour.
