A new retelling of the drama and mystery surrounding the world's most expensive painting is set to take the stage in New York in 2022 as a major Broadway musical.

"Salvator Mundi!" The Musical, announced by Tony Award-winning production company Caiola Productions, will chronicle the tale of Leonardo da Vinci's Renaissance-era portrait of Jesus, presumed lost for hundreds of years and only rediscovered this century.

The screenwriter of "Salvator Mundi!," Deborah Grace Winer, believes da Vinci's artwork has all of the ingredients needed to make a compelling historical narrative for the stage.

The saga of "Salvator Mundi" may seem like a niche topic for a stage production, but Winer believes some of the most popular musicals have succeeded because they are particular stories told in a compelling way.
