Florence Welch is Turning This Iconic Story into Broadway Musical!

Florence Welch has a new project in the works!

The 34-year-old Florence + the Machine singer is working on adapting The Great Gatsby into a Broadway musical, Variety reports.

Florence is currently working on writing the lyrics for songs to be included in the show, while collaborating with Grammy nominee Thomas Bartlett for the music.

The show, which is tentatively being called The Great Gatsby, A New Musical, will be written by Pulitzer Prize winner Martyna Majok and directed by Olivier Award nominee Rebecca Frecknall. As of right now, the show does not have a release date.

Originally written by F. Scott Fitzgerald and released in 1925, The Great Gatsby has been turned into a movie four times, most recently in 2013 starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, and Tobey Maguire. Florence was featured on the movie’s soundtrack.

“This book has haunted me for a large part of my life,” Florence said in a statement about the project. “It contains some of my favorite lines in literature. Musicals were my first love, and I feel a deep connection to Fitzgerald’s broken romanticism. It is an honor to have been offered the chance to recreate this book in song.”

Florence Welch is Celebrating Seven Years of Sobriety

Florence Welch is marking a major milestone.

The 34-year-old Florence and the Machine singer took to her Instagram on Tuesday (February 2) to celebrate seven years of sobriety.

“♥️I am 7 years sober today,” Florence started. “I send my love and support to anyone who is struggling. If you are feeling shaky around ED issues, drugs or alcohol, I completely understand.”

She continued, “The desire to disassociate is so strong. But please don’t give up. We are going to need you on the other side.♥️ x X”

Back in 2018, Florence opened up about her battle with substance abuse and why she decided to get sober.

“Being an extreme drinker was a huge part of my identity. Music and alcohol are sort of my first two loves,” Florence shared with Rolling Stone. “When I stopped, there was this sense that I was letting some ghost of rock history down that I just couldn’t cope anymore. It was monumental. It wasn’t like, ‘I want to be healthy and I need a change of pace.’ It was like, ‘I’m going to die. I need to stop.’”

Just recently, this actor opened up about his decision to get sober 30 years ago.

The issue celebrates various groups of people who “are bound not by blood or genetics or law, but by something more profound and just as durable — call it an affinity, if you will.”

Dakota and Florence posed with Gucci‘s creative director Alessandro Michele in a photo that also included agent and activist Bethann Hardison, actress Benedetta Porcaroli, writer Sinead Burke, designer and musician Zumi Rosow, musician Mykki Blanco, actress Alba Rohrwacher.

“We’re like kids when we get together, like when I was in school and we’d all go crazy over indie music or rap or how we all wanted the same hat. Friendship is a gift,” Alessandro says of their bond.
