Ruining two great things at once

Obviously, if you make a crappy jukebox musical out of Jeff Buckley songs, you'd not only want to treat Buckley shabbily; why not beat up another much-loved cultural institution at the same time?

A Jeff Buckley musical is reportedly set to enter development in New York.

The show, titled The Last Goodbye after one of Buckley's best known songs, will be a contemporary telling of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, set to the late singer-songwriter's music and lyrics.
Spoilers: They all die in the end.

I mean, it's obvious. If you can't be arsed to write a few new songs for your musical, why would you be bothered about coming up with a new story?
