"The Dog and Pony Show"

No, really. All the characters are dogs and ponies.

(Well, "Cats" worked, didn't it?)

Wicked 2.0: A Black Light Revolution.

The audience is encouraged to wear white t-shirts and Elphaba glows in the dark.

Why do we follow leaders who never lead?
Why does it take catastrophe to start a revolution?

"The Poseidon Adventure"

Oh, Timmer. Now you've filled my head with this incredible image of Shelly Winters in a Little Mermaid costume "swimming" in a sea of blue light. That's not an easy image to get rid of. Thanks a lot!

From a guy that knows (kind of... not really) the producer of Watching Paint Dry: A Silent Musical comes:

DIAL-UP: a musical recollection of the internet's humble beginnings

Everyone onstage is dressed as old computers and every dance number includes doing the robot at least once. The set design is full of ethernet cords, networks, computer terminals and the floor is littered with millions of AOL discs.

The orchestra pit is full of members and roadies of Styx.

Featuring the hit songs: "zzz" "Come on" "Come on already (Reprise)" and "Load, load"
Styx gain back the lime light with the curtain call "Mr. Roboto"
"We're all just children in a vast kindergarten trying to spell God's name with the wrong alphabet blocks." - Tennessee Williams

Some of these are "Producers"-esque (i.e., they are so classically bad that they might actually be good in a campy/horrible sort of way.)

"Fantasy Island"

"Tony and Cleo" (the musical of Shakespeare's "Antony and Cleopatra")
