The Wasteland ( think of how successful Cats was)
Catcher in the Rye, the Musical
Long Day's Journey into Night, the long musical
The Lord of the Rings
The Sound and the Fury
How many of those already exist?I know some folks who have been loosely connected with the LOTR musical, soon to open in Toronto.
Seriously? Lord of the rings? Damn
And I read something that made reference to an obscure version of Catcher in the Rye called "Catcher!" ... but I'm not sure if it's real...www.lotr.com
I've always wanted to stage the Roger Waters album, "Amused to Death."
Donald Barthelme made references to a fictional Eliot musical Wasteland!, by Lionel Bart, in a couple of his short stories (years in fact before Cats).The musical of LOTR indeed opened in Toronto within the past 6 weeks or so, and was apparently quite mediocre.Some friends and I spent some time thinking up songs for Journey!, including "I'm Just a Ghost on the Stairs," "What's a Drink Between Brothers," and "I may Be Irish (but I Know Scotch).I like the Glengarry idea . . .
How'd you do with Sound and the Fury? I think As I Lay Dying might actually work. Kinda....
If Wagner was still alive, he'd be attempting Long Day's Journey...
There was a hilarious LOTR musical done last year, in Los Angeles, called "Fellowship!" (Apparently with all of these, the exclamation point is very important.) It was way low budget, silly fun, but I loved it...
