Will someone write "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf-The Musical" already.
Kind of like an American Sweeney Todd.
"Killing My Baby" by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir
"You're No Good" by Betty Everett
"For the Love of God, Somebody Shit In My Mouth" by Lindsay Lohan
Let Me Be Your Shrew... Team Ivy all the way!
The heartbreaking ballad "Don't talk about the boy, Martha."
And you just knew, and there should be a song written about, Martha's pussy stink.
Broadway only goes for jukebox musicals these days, dear.
"The Earth (Mother) Song"
"Just a Gigolo"
"She's Like the Wind"
I'd rather see a musical version of Mommie Dearest.
And, of course, the Honey Dance.
Oh, won't somebody write a musical of John Cassavetes' Faces! It would be the greatest musical ever written! And how about Annie Hall? A musical of An Unmarried Woman would be ideal!
"What A Dump!" (From Some Goddamn Bette Davis Picture)
Music and Lyrics by Kim Carnes
A musical based on the documentary "Paris Is Burning".

Laugh all you want, but there have been worse ideas.
How about Cat!, the Cat on a Hot Tim Roof musical? Brick could close Act 1 with The Man That Got Away.
Can't wait for the Honey & Martha closing number "I Could Have Danced All Night". It would certainly be better than the original choice of "Sunday Bloody Sunday" by George and Nick.
11 O'Clock number-"No More Hump the Hostess"
"Never Mix, Never Worry" The feel good number of the year !
Helen Lawson is born to play Martha in the musical of "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf".
In cluding The showstopping ballad performed by Betty Buckley..."He's in the Math Department..."
Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf, the musical?
Needing an acidic, bitchy old hag to play Martha?
Oh, please, do go on......
Musicalization diminishes strong non-musical plays and enhances weak ones. WAOVW is too good a play to trivialize with songs.
"Moon over Bergin Street" by Sting
"One Bergin, One Scotch, One Beer" by John Lee Hooker
"Bergin Street Parade" by Wynton Marsalis
"Get the Guests" -- George & Martha
"I Am the Earth Mother (and You're All Flops)" -- Martha
"I Know This Story" -- George & Honey (duet)
"Slim-Hipped" -- Nick
"Daddy's the President" -- Martha
"Good, Better, Best...Bested!"
A showstopper for George, and a great dance number for terrified Nick. The surprise comes when a flashback teenaged George and his flashback Daddy take the stage, "bourgin" and all, for an extended set piece of VIOLENCE (as Honey sings from offstage)
Has nothing to do with Sweeney Todd in any way shape or form.
Great play but in no way does it lend itself to the form of a musical or opera.
Pomposity, thy name is R23.
(R21) sounds like selections from the Frankel/Korie version.
Next summer at Williamstown!
