Steven Van Zandt has been Bruce Springsteen’s guitarist and Tony Soprano’s consigliere. He also wants to be on the Great White Way. “I wrote half a Broadway show,” he said at the reunion concert of The Who’s Tommy. “It was around when Tommy was on Broadway, in the mid-nineties. And I thought, Maybe that’s the future. ” He laughed. “I wrote something quite interesting, which I should revisit. A musical version of The Hunchback of Notre Dame. But just as I got an agent, Disney came out with the cartoon movie, so everybody thought, ‘Well, Disney’s going to do it on Broadway.’ To be perfectly honest, mine’s much better. I should finish it.”
