David Beckham's fairytale life is about to be adapted for the stage. The Theater of Dreams, a celebration of David Beckham's first 33 years of life, is set to launch in London's West End.

The musical aims to play on football (soccer) and celebrity as the new secular Western religions. The Theater of Dreams will portray Manchester United, with David Beckham at its helm, as a religion. The Theater of Dreams will be set within a football stadium, and its gospel-rock music will help to connect the worlds of sport and religion.
