Priscilla Presley and Immortal Entertainment Group unveiled plans to develop a musical stage show based on her legendary romance with the king of rock-and-roll. "This is going to be Priscilla's vision. It's her story. It's the king and the queen. It's the birth of rock-and-roll," said Immortal Entertainment. It may take 12 to 14 months to get a show up and running, and his company plans to conduct a nationwide talent search for the lead parts of Elvis and Priscilla. The musical will aim for Broadway, of course, but could easily open in Las Vegas, where Elvis made his mark in his later years. It is not clear how much of Elvis' own music would be in the production depending on resolution of copyright issues.
