Jeff Buckley's Romeo and Juliet Rock Musical

Wednesday, February 24, 2010| by Will Chen

The Last Goodbye, a rock musical adaptation of William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet featuring songs by Jeff Buckley, appears to be gaining some backing with a potential Broadway debut in late 2010 or 2011. Michael Kimmel conceived and adapted the show in collaboration with Mary Guibert, Buckley's mother and the executor of the late singer/guitarist's estate.

California born Jeff Buckley died in a tragic drowning accident in Memphis on May 29, 1997. He had emerged in New York City's club scene in the 1990's and his critiaclly acclaimed album Grace has achieved a large cult fan base with many claiming it to be one of the best albums on the 90's.
