This thread is my new favorite thing,
darquegk said: "In a previous thread I had tried to imagine the most offensive Jesus Christ Superstar I could think of, and came up with one in which Jesus is characterized not just as mortal, or as morally ambiguous, but as a monster. A charismatic, narcissistic camp gay with additional pedophilic tendencies, leering at every young shirtless man and visibly disgusted by the poor and sick, though he turns on the charm when in public. A total manipulative sham, mainlining coke into his system and robbing the coffer himself as his cult of personality grows bigger and bigger. A show in which Judas and the priests are absolutely right to want to stop this train, and one in which Jesus gropes several disciples and slaps Mary Magdalene at the Last Supper. The kind of show where Jesus dies on the cross with a vulpine grin, sadomasochistically thrilled at how much publicity he is going to get.Basically, imagine a perverse fusion of Andy Dick and Jimmy Saville as Jesus, the head of the biggest religion in the country. I'm not suggesting this production actually be realized, by the way. I'm trying and succeeding in creating something that offends even myself."Granted that you're not suggesting this production actually be realized, I must state, as a JCS fan and a working producer, that I am by no means a reactionary, but I would be almost forced to boycott this production as a matter of principle.
I just realized I could sum up my entire anti-pitch as "Jesus Christ SuperEvita."
Evita, as staged by elves in Santa's workshop who don't know what "santa" means in Spanish.
a dream little shop of horrors revival where jennifer hudson is audrey and jennifer holiday is the audrey II and they each have something to PROVE to each other.a production of pippin. charlemagne is a trump impersonator. pippin is america.

One woman Funny Girl, where Fanny has lost it and is in a padded cell with Nicky Arnstein scrawled all over the walls.

I haven’t figured out all the nuts and bolts, but I’m here for a revival of Grease based on the theory rhat Sandy died when she nearly drowned and the whole thing is a coma fantasy. My revival would end with “We Go Together” and Sandy’s funeral as Danny holds her lifeless hand and sings “we’ll always be together” through tears
THE HUMANS sung through to a new Andrew Lloyd Webber score and starring an all feline cast.
I saw a drag show that set Annie in a whore house. Miss Hannigan was the madam and Annie and the orphans were the girls of the house. Daddy Warbucks was played by a lesbian in king drag. It was hilarious.

Almost as good as the Trinity rep production of Annie, which was literally iconic.I actually did know someone who worked on a production of Into The Woods at Northwestern where it was a meta theatrical set in a refugee camp, with the concept of that all the refugees were "playing" the roles. I've always said I want to direct Schoolhouse Rock Live! and at the beginning of the show, ever so subtly, Mr. Morton takes some special sugar cubes in his coffee and the whole thing feels like a very vibrant, 70s infused acid trip. However, I think its important to be selective about these concepts, because dropping acid is almost nothing like how it's ever portrayed, which I find to be annoying.Also just reviving Via Galactica in any capacity is a concept enough of itself, right? Can we make that happen?

Revival of A Streetcar Named Desire with added scenes of Blanche escaping the asylum and wreaking vengeance on her oppressors.
