I would have been delighted to hear this if it was April 1st.

Can't they learn a lesson from 'The Lord Of The Rings - The Musical'?

Is Broadway really running that short of ideas for new plays that they have to turn to movies??
This is pretty sad, if it's the case.

They probably have Windows Messenger, which is the same, but with hardly any features at all. :P

Just so you know, my friend at College was taking the piss out of The Edge. Don't worry, I never joined in. Maybe I laughed a bit. But that's all. It was funny, relax! xD

Back to the topic... I bet the musical will be a big piece of shit, but if there's U2 music, then it can't be totally bad. :D

By now we all know that Broadway and West End musical producers will throw in the most pathetic storyline to a musical just for the sake of featuring the catalog of a very popular band or artist.

You know, the saddest part about this is that it can be very good, if it's done right. For instance, I saw The Lion King in Toronto when it was playing there, and it was absolutely amazing.
But I know that Lord of the Rings was shit. I'm guessing this won't work out very well either. :-(
I love theater, but it appears to be headed downhill very quickily.
Oh, and thanks for The Youtube link, Pieter. Guess it just proves that not everything that came out of the 70's is a good thing

Well, WWRY is like that and it's pretty successful, isn't it? ;-P
