Steve Jobs, Bill Gates musical is heading to Broadway

The founding fathers of tech, Steve Jobs and Bill Gates, are getting their own musical on Broadway.

"Nerds" is a "musical dot-comedy" that gives tech enthusiasts an insight into the rise of Apple and Microsoft's co-founders, and how the two tech superstars battled it out against one another to become an ultimate "tech trailblazer."

The journey from the "floppy disc era to the iPhone phenomenon" is set to open at New York's Longacre Theatre this Spring, the producers announced Thursday.

While the theater isn't for everyone, the production team is hoping to entice tech enthusiasts with advanced production technology such as projections and holograms to immerse the audience into the show.

On top of that there'll be an app so that the audience can interact with the set and even let them choose the show's ending.

"While fine-tuning and re-coding the show for this exciting launch, we've also been exploring innovative ways to enhance the 'user experience' inside the theater, for a uniquely entertaining event — compatible for Broadway audiences of all generations," Carl Levin, a "Nerds" producer said in a statement.

This isn't the only artistic take on the former Apple CEO's life. There have been four feature-length films on Steve Jobs, with the latest scoring two Oscar nominations for 2016.

Danny Boyle, the director behind the 2015 biographical drama "Steve Jobs" said Jobs was "one of the major figures in our lives", when he spoke to CNBC last September. Another one of mentioned films called "Pirates of Silicon Valley" even looked into how both Gates and Jobs revolutionized the 20th century.

The theater production has been in the works for quite some time, having been first presented by the Philadelphia Theatre Company, and dates back as early as the New York Musical Theatre Festival in 2005.

While the cast has not yet been announced, the production boasts an impressive behind-the-scenes team including those who've worked on several Broadway shows, including "Rock of Ages" and "Hamilton".

The musical dot-comedy is set to open on Broadway on April 21, 2016, with preview performances taking place from March 31.
