Baywatch On The Boards

Catherine Tate has an unlikely new project. “I’ve been approached by a man who wants to know if I’d be interested in writing Baywatch: the musical. The idea is so off the wall that I agree to meet him to discuss it further. Presuming that if the show were to happen it would be a camp extravaganza, I fully expect to find an equally camp extravaganza waiting for me at a bar in Soho. But the man looked surprisingly like a supply teacher. He talked about his vision with such confidence that Baywatch: the musical didn’t seem like such a ridiculous idea after all. I left feeling quite buoyant.”
