Strike!

It's not about bowling; it's a musical about last year's theatre strike.

After all, if we don't get a good show out of it, what good was it?

I had too all the time I was growing up:

"Sybil:The Musical" featuring the now classic standards, "The People, The People", "I'm Vicky, I'm Peggy Lou and Who Are You?" and the Act One closer, "She Holds Her Water Til The Very Last Note!"

I also thought a musical version of the Diane Lane B-flick "Streets of Fire" would be pretty good. I think it could really rock and the beginning kidnapping could be very dramatic since Ellen Aim could be performing to the audience and the kidnappers could enter from the back of the theatre and carry her out a la the film.

The Silence of the Lambs, featuring the rollicking ensemble number, "I Can Smell Your C*nt." Despite being a supporting character, Buffalo Bill steals the show with his dynamic duet "It Rubs The Lotion" and his solo, the stupendous "Would You F*ck Me?" The latter will rise to iconic status, becoming the "I Am What I Am" for bat sh*t crazy serial killers. The headlines write themselves. "The lambs aren't silent anymore!"

I still want Phineas Gage: The Musical! to happen.

Actually, I was thinking that the Stanford Prison Study could be turned into a musical. With such numbers as "Prisoner 819 Did a Bad Thing" and the big Act I finale, "I'm All ****ed Up."

The Fountainhead would make a better musical than Atlas Shrugged.

How about "Prufrock" (based on the Eliot poem -- hey, "Cats" worked.)

Shows based on any of these movies:
There Will Be Blood
No Country For Old Men
The Departed
Babel
Shark Tale
Sleuth (2007 version)

Or on any of these TV shows:
Seinfeld
The Simpsons
Avatar: The Last Airbender
Danny Phantom
Kim Possible
Teen Titans
(though I must say 30 Rock and Pushing Daisies could have potential)

And here's the juggernaut...DISNEY CHANNEL: THE MUSICAL!!!!!!
Act I would cover such timeless hits as DuckTales and Darkwing Duck, while Act II would explore new classics like Kim Possible and Lizzie McGuire.

The only thing I would find desireable about that is if I got the chance to play Dr. Drakken. He is the best kid's show villain since Boris Badenov.

Would Dr. Drakken's big number be his karaoke of the O Boyz?

Included in Prufrock, of course, would be Alfred's star turn, "The Peach Song."

How about this?

"Abu Ghraib" A musical about power. With a "prisoners' chorus" who spend most of the show with underwear on their heads. Songs include "Boxers or Briefs" and "Bark Like a Dog."
