    This is why Broadway is dead with its constant cannibalization of old movies. I suppose somebody could produce “The Exorcist: the Musical” or “The Elephant Man: the Musical” and people would still line up to buy tickets because of name recognition.

    “Brokeback Mountain: the Musical”
    “Schindler’s List: the Musical”

    Broadway is a corpse.

    Don’t be silly, the eyebrows are needed to distract from the pornstache.

    I regret to inform you the “Schindler’s List: The Musical” has already been done. See to hear Liam Neeson featured in the showstopper, “I Could Have Done More.”

    His Mom spent a lot of time on his brows,especially after the,”Cut me”, scene in “Rocky” messed up their alignment. That and his massive reconstructive facelift are responsible for the “surprise” look.

    It’s been surprisingly successful here in Germany, and not just with general audiences, but with critics as well.

    Before you marinade your comments in cynicism, why not give it a chance, guys?

    I loathe Stallone, so “Rocky” without him in it is, for me, a major win! And considering I just saw “Flashdance: the Musical” last night in Portland, I can now say with assurance that rock bottom has been reached, and we have nowhere to go but up. (But I still love you, Jakob Karr!)

    Yes, it would be nice to have another Broadway smash not based on a movie besides “The Book of Mormon,” but doesn’t seem to be in the cards for the near future.
