Will someone write "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf-The Musical" already.

Kind of like an American Sweeney Todd.

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"

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!

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"

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.

"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)

Horrible idea.

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.
