There are still terrible, terrible ideas for musicals left to be discovered.
Here's the latest:
Country music songwriters Brandy Clark and Shane Mcanally are developing a new musical based on American variety show Hee Haw.Yes. A sketch-and-tunes TV programme is being adapted into a musical. How, exactly?
Clark and MCAnally are the composers for the musical, which is about a "wily sexpot from (Hee Haw's fictional rural town) Kornfield Kounty" who wants to explore the world before walking down the aisle with her boyfriend.A wily sexpot, eh? There must have been a lot of thought poured into developing that well-rounded character.
If this sounds terrible, the real fear is that it might be a success. And if 'musical based on variety TV' becomes a thing, we're only two years away from Seaside Special: The Musical.
Be afraid people. Be afraid.
