An ‘Urgent’ beeline to Broadway? 

By Pete Rizzo

Lou Gramm

Foreigner is adding an interesting wrinkle to their 40th anniversary celebration with a new musical that I say comes to Broadway in only a matter of time. The show is called, fittingly, “Juke Box Hero” and premieres in Canada.

All due respect to Kelly Hansen, but good luck poaching a stage actor that can pack in the intensity that Lou Gramm does in the title track of the musical, which I still say is one of his greatest vocal performances.

I say this tune is a no brainer to become Broadway-ized.

I sure hope this one makes the cut as well.

How about you?  What Foreigner classics would you like to see get the Broadway treatment?
