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!
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
