Could the Crawley family soon be warbling their way through World War I? Maybe, according to an interview with Downton Abbey composer John Lunn, who says a musical based on the show is in the works.
Lunn said in a radio interview that he’s working on a live performance about Lord Grantham and the gang. “There’s talk of [creator] Julian Fellowes and I and some of the cast doing a live tour the way Dr. Who did; 70% of it will be music from the show,” he said. “There might be some Elgar, there might be some jazz of the periods. Some of the actors will likely recite. We’ll have a screen. We may have the music live to several scenes. Julian may be the host.”
Sounds like a ball, but will it really come to fruition? “I’d say it’s a 75% chance it will happen,” Lunn reportedly said.
