Talking about the news of the musical, Scott Alan said: “I have long been asked to bring together my eight albums worth of songs, to stream a line of stories together. I never thought it was time. It wasn’t until the release of my latest album, Lifeline, that I feel I had an ending that was less about the gravity of where I’ve been, and more about the advancement of who I am today and the pride that I have within that. With producers Sarah Evans and Krystal Lee, and this exceptional cast of actors interpreting my music and lyrics, I am extremely confident in declaring that now is the right time to tell this story and I couldn’t be more proud.”
