Harry Potter the Musical?

The Sunday Mirror is reporting this morning that a Harry Potter-themed musical is currently in the works. To open in London’s West End, the article says producers are working on several script ideas and believe it has huge potential:

The difficulty is condensing the seven books into a manageable show. They are exploring various ideas. One possibility is to tell the whole story. Another is to just take a single plot.

While very interesting, the Sunday Mirror says that producers hope to have the show open next year. Unless this musical has been in the works for some time, there is very little chance that it could open in only 1 – 2 years time. So with that, put this in the “very, very big rumor” category for now until more whispers start floating around. Thanks to those who e-mailed with the link!
