Empire Records is about to make a major comeback. The record store employees from the 1995 classic film is going to be turned into a Broadway musical. According to sources, it will be produced by Bill Weiner together with Carol Heikkinen, who wrote the original film.
It’s filled with nostalgia for old record stores where you could talk to the workers all day about your shared loved of music and get to know new bands. The musical will premiere in 2020 in honor of the 25th anniversary of the movie. There has not been any further detailed released, but we do know that they’ve been working hard.
