It’s been roughly five years since we heard about Nikki Sixx’s memoir The Heroin Diaries getting adapted to a full-fledged Broadway show. Sixx has been keeping himself very busy over the last few years, especially from the official end of Mötley Crüe and apparently not hearing from one of his ex-bandmates. While we heard about Mötley Crüe’s film adaptation of The Dirt is set for a Netflix release, it seems Sixx has found some time to share an update on the Broadway show. Over the weekend, Sixx suggested production was coming along and next week they are looking into casting.
“End of a long and productive week working on “The Heroin Diaries” play. Really exciting to finally be digging into the details and talking through set design & music for the theater stage (obviously I have a lot of experience with set design which is helpful but a theatrical presentation is different in a lot of ways)…We have a great team and I am learning a lot..Really grateful we have the people we have for this show……The music is now laced in with the dialogue.Most of the songs are written already but I might need to write one more to fill a gap…….Next up after I recover from surgery next week is casting….Have a great weekend….N”
