The latest "serious subject" musical

Fatboy Slim and David Byrne are working together to produce a musical called "Here Lies Love", based on the exploits of Imelda Marcos (as my heroes Bill and Ted might say, she's the shoe-chick from the Philippines).

I guess if you can produce an opera about J. Robert Oppenheimer, a musical about Imelda Marcos is not that off the wall. "Springtime for Hitler and Germany" is sounding less and less far fetched every day. Myself, I'm holding out for the feel-good song-and-dance about Pol Pot.
