I pride myself in the fact that I have lived in New York for a long time and have never gone to see a musical of any kind. But, that might have to change when the musical adaptation of the Bret Easton Ellis book hits the stage. There’s no cast and the music and script haven’t even been written yet, but Variety is reporting that it’s going to be a huge Broadway production when it’s done. If they manage to combine Huey Lewis and chainsaw murder on stage, that might be worth going to midtown for.
Initial reports suggest that they want to keep the story and the music true to the original, meaning that it will be jam packed with ’80s nostalgia. I have my fingers crossed for an original song that sounds like Peter Gabriel with lyrics about skull fucking. But, until it’s done, I’ll settle for watching Evil Dead: The Musical or plotting the brutal murder of everyone involved with Legally Blonde: The Musical.
