Michael Jackson's THRILLER THE MUSICAL!
Boy I tell ya, we may be on the cusp of a resurgence of the HORROR MUSICAL.
Evil Dead the Musical... Sweeny Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street... the recently released and critically acclaimed Repo (now available on DVD HERE)... and then today in Variety it was announced that Michael Jackson's THRILLER will be heading for the theater as a live action musical.
As I young horror hound, I would watch John Landis's "The Making of Thriller" over and over until the VHS tape was literally wearing out.
This news excites me.
To be able to see a werewolf transformation live on stage and dancing zombies--I'll say that again-- DANCING ZOMBIES while bobbing my head to nostalgic 80s tunes... well... well it just warms the cockles of my heart.
Here's to hoping it doesn't suck.
