Former Chic guitarist Nile Rodgers is working on a new Broadway musical based on his life story.

The musician is writing a stage show based on his book, Le Freak: An Upside Down Story of Family, Disco, and Destiny, and he is hoping to launch the project in New York.

He tells New York Post gossip column Page Six, "I didn't write the book thinking about holding anything back. Writing a show is completely different, because the show is not just to tell the history; it's also to entertain... The good thing is, because it's the story of my life and I know my life, I can figure out which chunk I want to talk about and which is the most entertaining that would feel didactic without being boring - without sucking."
