Like so many musicians who are creating musicals using their songs, Blues Rockers ZZ Top are working on a musical of their own – “Sharp Dressed Man”. But unlike the artists who are looking at Broadway for their productions, ZZ Top are teaming up with Caesars Entertainment to bring their show to Las Vegas next year.
This modern day take on the “Robin Hood” story; executive producers Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill, and Frank Beard have created “an outrageous, bawdy musical romp about a Lone Star auto mechanic,” who is “stealing hearts – and auto parts – with the help of his merry band of beer drinkers and hell raisers.”
Speaking on the production Billy Gibbons said, “we’re excited about this fantastic project and look forward to hearing our music in a new innovative context. Fans have often told us that we’ve provided the soundtrack to their lives, and this is very much in line with that kind of enthusiastic thinking.”
