Just when I think the world can't get any goofier....
For years, I've had a running joke with a co-worker about going to see a production of "Silence Of The Lambs - On Ice". It cracks me up to imagine Hannibal Lecter skating around an arena in his straitjacket and goalie mask during an Ice Capades production number.
I got a similar kick out of "Backdraft - The Musical", as parodied in Christopher Guest's movie "Waiting For Guffman".
The movie "The Producers" centers around an intentionally bad musical about the life of Adolph Hitler.
I love the idea of taking one art form and cramming it into another that just doesn't fit. It cracks me up every time.
But this? Can it be for real? And who will play Saint Albert, The Goracle of Music City Tennessee? Garth Brooks? Toby Keith? George Strait? Can they cast Placido Domingo as a Polar Bear? Are they going to have a real set and stage, or just use a PowerPoint?
It's a pity they can't give Pavarotti a small role as an iceberg.
Hat Tip to NickM at Counting Cats for alerting me to this opportunity.
