I worked on this little excercise with my friends. Whatt you do is you take your favorite composers, your favorite songs they have done, limit it to 20-25 songs and you come up witha plot summary of the show. Even if it sucks it's a lot of fun. Do try it. It may be considered sad by some, but it's fun to see the results.

How about a show about the life and career of Ed Wood, Jr? It could start off with him singing "Movies Were Movies", then some of the other songs could be "Only in the Movies", "Put a Little More Mascara On", "Come Look At The Freaks", "I Feel Pretty", "Skid Row", "There's No Business Like Show Business", "Everything's Coming Up Roses"... But whatever you do don't include the song "It's a Hit". Sorry everyone, I'm REALLY, REALLY tired...

There is a musical based on the life of Ed Wood, Jr. called, I believe, 'Worst Ever.' It never got produced anywhere important but I believe there's a cast album.

Attempts to turn 'Ed Wood' the movie into a musical ran into rights problems.

I want the little girl from the Pepsi commercials to play me. Way too many people have told me that she looks like me.

Thanks guys, I'm definitely going to get the cast album, just out of curiosity!

I am Katemonster.
That would be my dream role or to be Tracey in Hairspray.
I could do it.
But I am out of the business since I was 12.
