A new rock musical based on the music ZZ Top will open in Las Vegas next year. According to Billboard, Sharp Dressed Man is described as "an outrageous, bawdy musical romp about a Lone Star auto mechanic who becomes a modern-day Robin Hood, stealing hearts--and car parts--with the help of his merry band of beer drinkers and hell raisers." “We’re excited about this fantastic project and look forward to hearing our music in a new innovative context,” says the band's Billy Gibbons. “Fans have often told us that we’ve provided the soundtrack to their lives, and this is very much in line with that kind of enthusiastic thinking.” The show’s book is being written by Robert Cary and Jonathan Tolins, who wrote the teleplays for Fox TV's Grease Live! and A Christmas Story Live!
