Oh dear, it’s really happening: Nikki Sixx’s “Heroin Diaries: The Musical” is coming to Broadway.

He told the New York Post, “It’s not going to be Mamma Mia” and that it should hit Broadway late this year or early 2014. The play is based on his memoir about being totally zonked out on smack and cocaine during his Mötley Crüe days.

Will Adam Lambert play Sixx? Will a character named “Dr. Feelgood” “Kickstart” his heart after he ODs? Will it be god-awful? Green Day pulled off “American Idiot,” so you never know.
