Is the world ready for a song and dance version of the life of Victoria Beckham and her soccer stud hubby David Beckham? A theater company in Dublin, Ireland, sure hopes so!
MacBecks, which the show's director calls a "wild comedy romp," pokes fun at the international supercouple, mixing details of their headline-making life with various bits from classic William Shakespeare plays.
“We’re very excited by the script," says Ronan Smith of Long Road Productions, which is behind the staging of the satirical sing-song affair. "It borrows from Shakespeare’s Macbeth, King Lear and Romeo & Juliet."
According to reports, Posh will be portrayed as an ambitious Lady Macbeth for whom husband David sacrifices his career.
Other real-life characters slated to be portrayed in the show — slated to premiere in January 2009 — include Sir Alex Ferguson, manager of Becks' former team, Manchester United, and Rebecca Loos, David's former assistant with whom he was alleged to have been more than professional.
