Major Spoilers Question Of The Day: Would It Make Good Musical Theatre Edition

by

While I’m not a big theatre guy, I was entertained (and perhaps confused) to find that classic Troma monster/superhero flick ‘The Toxic Avenger’ has been given the musical treatment.  Sure, Toxie is uniquely suited to busting through genre/media bounds (as you might recall, he even had a kiddie cartoon back in the day), but the knowledge that someone composed a song entitled “Who Will Save New Jersey?” in order to make the adventures of a man in a rubber mask sufficiently operatic soothes my worries about the nature of the universe.  (Absurdity, after all, is a driving force of reality.)  It also makes me wonder about what sort of legs Sgt. Kabukiman might have on the Great White Way, all the while searching in the back of my mind for a decent rhyme for ‘Legion of Super-Heroes.’  This, in turn, begs today’s query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) is still utterly banjaxed that ‘Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark’ made any money at all, but I supposed it just proves I’m not the target audience, asking: What unlikely pop culture property would you most like to see as a Broadway musical?
