A Musical About '90s Icons TLC Could Be Heading To Broadway

Don't go chasing waterfalls -- just consider booking a ticket to New York because a TLC musical is in the works.

The Atlanta group best remembered for their smooth RNB hits, flawless choreography and decade-defining wardrobe could soon hit the musical theatre stage.

One of TLC's surviving members -- Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas -- has revealed that she and Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins have been working on penning the next big Broadway hit.

In a recent interview with Cheddar, Chilli (seated alongside another '90s/early '00s legend, Nelly) revealed the exciting project.

"We're also working on the TLC musical and TLC on Broadway, so we're going to create new music for those projects as well," she explained.

Chilli added that the group has "so many stories to tell" that didn't make it to their 2013 biopic for VH1, CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story. 

Which is bonkers, because the film included the wild  1994 story of Lisa "Left Eyes" Lopes literally setting fire to a bathtub full of sneakers belonging to her allegedly abusive ex Andrew Rison, with the blaze eventually burning down his entire house.

Lopes tragically died at age 30 after being involved in a car crash while on holiday in Honduras. It's unknown how the musical will approach Lopes' story or pay tribute to the singer's memory.

"But...a lot of stuff, a lot of good stuff," Chilli promised of the upcoming TLC saga. "Very emotional but a good ride," she added.

The music of the '90s and early '00s has been enjoying a renaissance of sorts lately, and Chilli said it's because the people are hungry for quality lyrics.

"I think that during that time, no matter what the track was like ...the beat always gets you... everyone had great lyrical content and that really resonates with people," she said.

TLC's best-known hits included catchy PSAs that warned listeners against the perils of chasing waterfalls, and avoiding "broke ass" scrubs.

"We're so blessed to have longevity, a lot of our music is timeless," Chilli said.
