Gary Glitter musical fails to find investors

Gary GlitterFollowing the success of Mamma Mia, We Will Rock You, and a host of a nostalgic West End musicals, would-be theatrical impressario Cliff Powell had been confident that there was another hit show just waiting in the wings. However the main investor in the new Gary Glitter musical ‘My Gang!’ today announced that the show now looks unlikely to happen. Mr Powell who has given years of his life to this project said ‘We contacted hundreds of potential investors with the message ‘Do You Wanna Be In My Gang?’ and quite a strong signal came back saying ‘Well, no.’

Back in the 70s Gary Glitter topped the charts with hits such as Do You Wanna Touch Me, I’m the Leader of the Gang (I am) and I Love You Love Me Love. However the former glam rock star has recently been the subject of some negative publicity which Cliff Powell conceeded may have made some financial backers a little wary that his family show had a future. ‘Why can’t people just enjoy the music?’ he complained ‘It’s just political correctness gone mad.’
