Bey-Jay’s girl stars on stage

Daily Star Sunday - - WIRED -

JAY Z and Bey­oncé’s lit­tle girl Blue Ivy is about to be im­mor­talised in showbiz as the sub­ject of a Broadway mu­si­cal.

Top Amer­i­can play­wright Ryan Raftery is work­ing on a stage pro­duc­tion about grow­ing-up as a five-yearold with world fa­mous, pow­er­ful and mega-wealthy par­ents.

Raftery has writ­ten hit plays about US life­style guru Martha Ste­wart’s time be­hind bars for tax eva­sion and the con­tro­ver­sial life of Andy Cohen, Amer­ica’s first openly gay TV chat show host.

Now he is turn­ing the spot­light on Blue Ivy for a tongue-in-cheek mu­si­cal com­edy about what it must be like liv­ing with Jay and Bey – who wel­comed her twin sib­lings Rumi and Sir Carter into the world in June – as mum and dad.

“The project is in its early stages,” a source close to Raftery con­firmed.

And he added that the mu­sic power cou­ple and their el­dest child “have ab­so­lutely noth­ing to be wor­ried or alarmed about.

“Ryan in­tends to play it com­pletely for laughs,” said the source.

“But he wouldn’t dream of in­sult­ing one of the showbiz world’s most pop­u­lar and en­ter­tain­ing fam­i­lies.”

Raftery is aim­ing to open his play in spring 2019.
