Switch Kathy Bates and Nathan Lane’s roles and you have a hit on your hands
What a colossal piece of crap! It'll probably run for years.

PINK FLAMINGOS: The Musical

I actually kinda want this to happen, if only to make a John Waters musical trilogy.

Kevin Murphy is attached in some capacity

With such show-stopping moments as the patter song "Eggselent," Babs' Act Two turn "Filth (Is My Life)," and the climactic ballet "The Rejection."

A jukebox musical of the songs by legendary 90s-2000s pop songwriter Max Martin wouldn't be half bad actually... there are so many pretty decent songs there.

Ironically enough, the farcical plot proposed for "Les Miserables 2: Back To The Barricade," is almost the exact plot of "A Very Potter Sequel" three years later.

Several pages and years back, "Plague: The Musical" was suggested. About 15 years ago, I was visiting friends in London and went to see a show a friend was in. It was called "Eyam", and the major premise involved a village and the residents' attempt to avoid the plague. Musical numbers included "Moth Song", "Plague" (of course), and the rousing hit "Sumonyersgorragerroff!"

Female Trouble needs to be the next John Waters musical on stage. Dawn Davenport had more lives than Aimee Semple and Sybil.

Hollywood Babylon: The Musical
-A series of musical vignettes of compiled (and mostly false) gossip based on the Kenneth Anger book. We might not have enough male chorus members for the Clara Bow-USC football team number.

There was a Heathers musical was (I default to past tense because I have no idea if it is still happening) in the works that the movie's screenwriter Daniel Waters had demos of that he let the author who was writing a book of the movie listen to. That was as far as last year where that was revealed to be happening. I love the movie but I am trying to think in post-Columbine America how they are going to play that on stage.

Film Parody: The Musical!

It's about a guy majoring in theatre who is constantly told by all his theatre major friends how brilliantly funny he is. He reads about a cult film that was turned into a campy parody musical and decides to copy the idea. All his friends think it's hilarious. Especially because the title has "The Musical!", which makes it even more funny, because it must have worked for that musical he read about and saw clips of on Youtube. At the world premiere. the only people who would come to the show are his friends and family and immediately following the opening night performance, Satan traps them all in the theatre, burns it down, and drags their souls to Hell to torture in extreme pain for all of eternity as punishment for their sophomoric humor and lack of originality. Mankind learns its lesson and never produces this type of show again. World peace. Love. Free universal health care. 0% unemployment. The end of poverty. And no species of animal is ever endangered again.

A musical about Natalie Wood's life.
Call it "Natalie" and have it open with the line "SING OUT, NATASHA!" Main characters include Mama Maria, Baby Lana, and of course Natasha herself, who will be played by Lindsey Lohan.
