Songfighter: The Musical

Post by Drew Tetz » Sat Nov 13, 2004 9:29 pm

As you may or may not have noticed, there are a helluva lot of Broadway shows springing up based entirely around songs by some particular musician. "Mamma Mia!" with ABBA songs, "Movin' out" with Billy Joel songs, there's some Queen thing in England, and God knows what else. Playwrights are jumping out of the freakin' woodwork to craft stories based around some band or musician.

So, if somebody was to make a musical based around your (or someone else's) song fight songs, what would the story be?

I think that the Octothorpe musical would be the most fun, due to the utter insanity and cast of millions, but it would probably be the hardest to actually craft a coherent story around. Sober would be a bit easier, although you would have to like Ireland a lot. 8) A MISS musical would be sweet, except the audience would all be dead by the end of it. And they'd have to have a very good janitorial staff to mop up all of the blood from the audience's collective leaking wrist.

Well?

I think that an Octothorpe version of Avenue Q would be one of the funniest things ever.

A little off topic, but a musical based on the entire nympho leprechaun story generated by Jonathan Mann, featuring music by FSS and the like, could be insanely awesome.

If you don't know what I'm talking about, look up the nympho leprechaun story.

Slightly off-topic, West Side Story is fabulous, and contains 'Somewhere' surely the greatest 'unintentional' gay empowerment anthem in 'Somewhere'. I would love to turn it into a big gay party hat bruhaha, myself.

My "Five Minutes" would be the motif of a musical about my life.
