Sing like a Boyd

Yesterday's Sunday Times reported that Billy Boyd is trying to get a musical off the ground. Actually, it made it seem he was "to star in a Gorbals musical" as if the whole thing were all in the bag. Further reading revealed that he's still to have discussions with John Tiffany of the National Theatre of Scotland. If it comes off, however, it could be a welcome addition to the small pool of home-grown musicals. More on Boyd here.

Meanwhile, we await the opening of Stephen Greenhorn's Sunshine on Leith, set to the songs of the Proclaimers and opening in Dundee in April before a Scottish tour.
