G Tom Mac Announces ‘Lost Boys’ Musical

Do you love The Lost Boys?  Do you also love Broadway musicals?  Well, it looks like your dreams may be about to come true!  In a conversation with Broadway World, G Tom Mac, the singer and songwriter of the film’s hit theme song “Cry Little Sister”, revealed that he will soon be releasing brand new music from an upcoming recording of A Lost Boys Story; a musical based on 1987’s beloved vampire film.

The soundtrack from the musical will be available in October and Mac shared his excitement about the project, saying that the potential musical is “…something that I’ve been working on for some years in development. I wanted to give a back story to the characters and tell where they came from, and how they became Vampires, & their rebellious nature and youthful uniqueness, yet keeping in line with the humor that worked so well with the horror in the film. I’ve written all new songs that bring out a good deal of depth in the plays story, songs like ‘Sleep All Day Party All Night,’ ‘Be One of Us,’ ‘Long Hot Summer’ (Michael & Stars theme), and the ever -fun ‘Death by Stereo’. The soundtrack will release late August to give the fans a good way to get the music in them in anticipation of the upcoming play.” read more

“The Lost Boys” Television Show Pushed Back

While the Rob Thomas (iZombie) helmed version of the vampire tale is still in the future for the network, they simply don’t have the space on their packed schedule to get it going this season. Rumor has it that network brass is still excited for the project that was pitched as a seven-season anthology spanning seven decades in the life of the main cast of vampires with each season covering a different decade; Season One will be based in San Francisco during the 1960’s hippie movement. read more
