Mamas & The Papas: Optimistic about a bio-musical

Owen Elliot says that a Mamas and the Papas bio-musical might yet happen.

The daughter of the late Cass Elliot tells us it's been a disappointing 15-year process trying to bring the group's story to the stage. 

Plans with Jersey Boys writer Marshall Brickman, who played in an earlier group with John Phillips, fell through several years ago. And the death of Denny Doherty put an end to his well-received one-man tribute show Dream a Little Dream.

Elliot, Doherty's heirs, Michelle Phillips and John Phillips' children have signed with a management company that specializes in artists who have moved onto "rock and roll heaven."

Owen Elliot talked about The Mamas and the Papas' heirs bringing on new management:

"We've actually hired a manager that now represents the Mamas and Papas, and that's Jeff Jampol with Jam Artists here in L.A.. They manage many legacy artists, including The Doors, including Janis Joplin. And we've put ourselves in their capable hands of, you know, figuring out how we take this legacy forward."

Owen  remains optimistic that a biographical show on The Mamas and the Papas will be produced:

"I am hopeful that at some point, hopefully soon, there will be some form of a show that people will be able to see."
