It was fun when they made "Hairspray", a musical of a movie; then things got out of hand, and it seemed like just about any popular movie was up for grabs - "Young Frankenstein", "Spamalot" and "Shrek", to name a few.

Now, I think we can say we've reached the bottom of the barrel when people are talking about making a musical of a recently deceased reality TV show contestant.

Warhol's famous quip about everyone being famous for 15 minutes is rapidly coming true. At this rate, you can expect a music based on my life to be opening at The Diversionary for their 2011-12 season....

Which part of it, precisely? "Shower time"? "Laid back, not so relaxed"? :)

I did once see a play at the theatre I linked to (before it became a lot more serious about the kind of plays it showed) that had a prison shower scene.... :-)

Yep. And one with Jeff Stryker - in the *ahem* flesh - running down the center aisle buck naked. His "manhood" bounced on shoulders on either side, including mine.

When I was there, Stryker stopped in front of various audience members and waved ' it' in front of their faces. I was one of those who got that treatment, and when I didn't look at 'it' adoringly enough (he's not my type!), he hit me on the head with his monster and moved on...

I still have a dent on my forehead..... :-)

Yeah, next thing you know they'll be making another genre of entertainment from musicals: Spermalot, All That Jizz, Titty Titty Bang Bang...

That one sounds like it was a little bit tongue-in-cheek (so to speak!). It's more worrying when 'earnest' efforts come out, trying to make a buck from the public's nostalgia or prurience.

You boys are bringing the tone of this post down to lewd and crude levels.

Carry on!

No, I'm not kidding.

Bad idea... unless... proceeds go to charity then I think it's a great idea.

A play of my life would send the audience to sleep in about 15 minutes.... :-)

Maybe it's just me, but when I initially read this, I thought you wrote spermalot.....
