Would You See a Musical About Valentino’s Life?


Three years after the acclaimed biopic Valentino: The Last Emperor was released, the designer has declared that he is considering the possibility of a Broadway show about his life.

“We’re looking at the possibility of taking my story to Broadway, as a musical,” Valentino told Italian newspaper La Republica (via the Telegraph).

The designer told the paper that he was at times uncomfortable with how he was portrayed in the biopic.  “I came across as a despot,” he told the paper,  admitting that the film received rave reviews nonetheless. Well, with the possibility of a show headed to the Great White Way, Valentino can concoct a  whole new singing, dancing image.

Here’s the short list of who we think should play the designer if the musical does indeed come to fruition:

George Hamilton.
