A True Blood Fan First, Composer Second. Nathan Barr, the show’s composer, opens up about his plans for a True Blood musical and that Eric-Jason sex scene.
While the show has finally reached its conclusion, True Blood still lives on in Barr’s world. The composer made headlineswhen he revealed that he wanted to bring the show to the stage; an idea that he admits he’s had since season one when he wrote the song “Take Me Home” for a scene involving Sookie eating pie after her grandmother’s death. Wanting the song to be heard, Barr pitched the idea to show creator Alan Ball, who liked the idea, according to Barr, and helped him pitch it to HBO. “There are no guarantees at this point,” he admits, but he’s pushing forward. And Barr promises that the musical won’t follow the series into such territories as werepanthers. “It’s more about finding the essence of what the story is about and if you look at it from that point of view, it actually becomes quite simple because a musical is two hours.”
