The Flaming Lips's Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots album of 2002 is to cross from compact disc players and live stages the world over to the glittering lights of Broadway.
The trio have teamed up with Des McAnuff - an award-winning director - to create a show based on the record's myriad highs and lows.
Wayne Coyne, singer with the Lips, commented:
"When Des heard the record he heard a lot about death and loss and the triumph of your own optimism... he had an emotional attachment to it. I tell people all the time, it's not really a story. It's more like a mood. There's a Japanese girl; she fights some robots; that's five minutes.
"After that, I don't know."
More news when we have it, or whenever Wayne's worked out what'll happen after five minutes.
