The Sunday Giveaway: Two tickets to Bedbugs Off Broadway!
Bedbugs. Gross. They are the 2014 version of lice.
There’s just something about ’em that says dirty, disgusting . . . and musical!
Bedbugs The Musical is a lil’ bit Little Shop and a lil’ bit Rocky Horror – in other words, it’s one of those rock camp horror musicals that our industry does so well (just look at the rave Bedbugs got from the NY Times).
It’s interesting, isn’t it?
The only “Horror” musicals that have really worked have been treated in a certain style . . . humorous horror if you will. But the wall of Joe Allen’s is littered with other attempts, from Lestat to Carrie.
So, if you’ve got a hankering for some blood and guts in your show, you better make sure it’s funny.
In fact, let’s play the adaptation game, shall we? Let’s say you’ve been given a movie to adapt into a musical (this was my favorite BMI exercise). But it’s gotta be a horror movie. Like Hellraiser. Or Dawn of the Dead. Or Ishtar. (Oh wait, Ishtar wasn’t a horror movie. It was just horrifically bad.)
What scream-inducing horror flick would you like to see made into a musical? Extra credit if you can come up with a new title.
