Have you ever wondered what a Broadway musical of Animal House would be like? Neither have I, but it's going to happen. As long as they don't have a number called "Broken Bottle: Bluto's Lament" or "What Do You Do When You're Fat, Drunk, and Stupid" it might be superfluous yet tolerable, like a third nipple located in the armpit.

On the plus side, Broadway Animal House will be in the hands of a capable director and choreographer. Casey Nicholaw is at the helm, who has also choreographed Spamalot, directed and choreographed Elf the Musical (yup, that Elf), and choreographed and co-directed The Book of Mormon. Barenaked Ladies are set to do the music for Broadway Animal House. Don't know how I feel about that since, well, it's Barenaked Ladies, whose music evokes the spirit of Animal House about as well as an amateur medium at a noontime séance. At least it's not Smash Mouth.

This is the latest in a line of film-to-stage adaptations that have been popping up recently. In the last few months, there's been word of a Rocky Balboa musical, a possible Back to the Future musical, and even a musical adaptation of Woody Allen's Bullets Over Broadway. Still no word on Broadway musicals of Combat Shock, Vase de Noces (aka The Pig F***ing Movie), or Street Trash... yet.
