The Oscar-winning brother-sister duo seems to have something in the works… and we’re curious!

Imagine the show tunes we’d get from this duo!

On Monday, Jan. 8, siblings and producing duo Billie Eilish and Finneas O’Connell were featured in the live taping of an Awards Chatter podcast episode. Toward the end, host Scott Feinberg opened up for a Q&A.

An audience member asked, “Given how great a job you’ve done writing songs that serve stories other than your own, would you have any interest in writing an original musical for either the stage or the screen?”

Eilish responded with a very enthusiastic scream.

“For sure,” O’Connell said.

Eilish added, “Yes, Finneas has really, really good ideas for musicals already, and I’m so excited to see where they go. I’m very excited.” She then yelled out another animated “YEAH!”

Eilish and O’Connell received several awards for their work in the song “No Time to Die” from the James Bond movie No Time to Die. Now, they are once again on track to win big with “What Was I Made For?” from the Barbie movie.

Given the unconventional process and highly successful bodies of work that have come out of Eilish and O’Connell so far, we can only imagine what a musical made by them would look and sound like. This is really exciting news not only for Eilish fans but also for theater fans who want the genre of musicals to keep evolving and welcoming different perspectives.

We hope that these ideas for a musical become real projects sooner rather than later!
