The Panic at the Disco singer has been dabbling in musical theatre which was made evident when he performed on Broadway in 2017 as the lead in Kinky Boots.
Now, he’s thinking of writing his own musical.
“I’ve been talking to a couple of movie directors about film music ideas and about doing musical theatre, Broadway maybe,” he told The Sun. “The ideal [scenario] would be to write music for an idea somebody else has come up with… I talked about doing my origin story, growing up in Vegas, so we will see what happens.”

He also adds that his time on Broadway was some of the best fun he’s ever had.
“Broadway is a different beast entirely to being in a band. It is the most grueling schedule,” he explained. “It’s the most exhausted I had ever been.”
“I also didn’t plan ahead enough. We had just done a two-and-a-half month tour and I was like, ‘Screw it, I am going right in to Broadway’. But it was cool – I’d never take it back.”
While it doesn’t seem like we’ll see a Brendon Urie musical soon, we have high hopes that it’ll be amazing.
