The singer, who originally planned to perform his 1975 concept album "Welcome to My Nightmare" and his 2011 sequel "Welcome 2 My Nightmare" in concert, is now envisioning the project as a Broadway show.
"['Welcome 2'] went to [No. 22 on the charts, and] it wasn't enough to merit doing an entire show around it. But we still do four or five songs from it," Cooper told the Oakland Press. "I think if we ever take Alice Cooper to Broadway, it would just be called Nightmare. 'Welcome to My Nightmare' would be the first half and 'Welcome 2' would be the second half. That would work. That idea's always out there; you just have to wait until a producer comes long and says, 'I love that idea.' I think maybe a little more time needs to go by before 'Nightmare' becomes sort of an American classic… Then we'll have that validity to go and do the [Broadway] show."
