Brendan O'Carroll Wants Big Irish Acts To Score 'Mrs. Brown The Musical'

The Dublin comedian has revealed that he is hoping that the likes of The Script and Picture This will pen songs for a new musical show he is planning to stage in 2019.

Revealing that he's hoping to get some big Irish acts involved, Brendan says: "The Script, I’m hoping, will do a number. Picture This will do one. I haven’t written the story yet, but that’s where we are heading.

"We are very lucky because everybody sings. Some of them have amazing voices, and then there will be a couple of them who will rap. It will be fun.

The new musical will tour Ireland, the UK, Australia and New Zealand in 2019.

"I’m writing a new show for 2019, Mrs Brown: The Musical. It will still tour, I wouldn’t stay in one place," Brendan told the Evening Herald.

"One of the reasons why I haven’t done Broadway or London is because they want you to stay in one place for six months. That’s like a real f***ing job."

"Everyone will be singing. It’s hard writing anything. I’ve written a few songs. It won’t be just me."
