Jesse Ventura on Broadway?

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Watch out Broadway, here comes Gov. Jesse Ventura.

Ventura has signed over the rights to a musical based on his life to Pierre Cossette, a TV, music and theatrical producer whose credits include ``The Scarlet Pimpernel'' and ``The Will Rogers Follies.''

The show is tentatively titled ``The Body Ventura,'' and Cossette said he has begun to think of scenes and songs from Ventura's colorful life as a professional wrestler and politician.

``You open with the damnedest tag-team match you've ever seen,'' he said. ``I can see `Jesse For President.' ... What a production number that is.''

Although millions of dollars would have to be raised before a show could be produced, Cossette said every show he has developed has reached Broadway. Cossette would not say how much Ventura stands to earn, except that it would be ``a very, very tiny percentage'' of the show.
