Somebody told Alan Coren, a British humourist, that the most popular books were about cats, golf and Nazis so he named a collection of his newspaper articles, Golfing for Cats, published with a big friendly Swastika on the (original) cover.

Subby's headline and the infamous Brantgoose imagination have made my day by coming up with Golfing for Cats:  The Musical. It's like Batboy: the Musical, only with cats playing golf in snazy SS uniforms and singing parodies of CATS songs and "Springtime for Hitler".

An Austrian musical about Nazis killing retarded kids. It's as if the Sound of Music family failed to make it over the Alps.

I never understood how the Nazis could murder children until I had my own.

The PBS documentary Prisoner in Paradise about Kurt Gerron shows film of the child lead singing in a musical. The kid had an amazing voice and was very talented. His problem was he was an inch too short. He was gassed immediately Auschwitz because of his height, instead of being sent to slave labor.

It's got a beat and you can march to it.

Ten bucks says Ahnold's dad was somehow involved. The Austrians, being largely Catholic, a touch provincial beyond Vienna, and bitter about having lost a big old inbred empire, were more Nazi than the Germans, up to and including, of course, Herr Schickelgruber.

hushed audience gathered in Austria's Parliament to watch the world premiere of an opera depicting how the Nazis methodically killed mentally or physically deficient children at a Vienna hospital during World War II.

Yeah that really makes me want to burst out into song too, subby.

That's one funny book, by the way. My favorite piece is the one where Coren rewrites 1984 to reflect the incompetence encountered when dealing with the government.

The motion picture 'M' was a hit in Germany when it opened.
Its about a guy who kills children.

And then... Several years later...

I'm not sure I would call opera "bursting into song".  It's a great art form to tell this story.

Look dude, don't make me do a bunch of Klingon opera to set you straight.

Wow, an opera that is only an hour long. I went to an opera about Oppenheimer a few years back...it had about an hour's worth of material stretched over three. And I LIKE opera...that one was not very good, though.

The DVD of it is amazing, especially Eric Owens as Leslie Groves.

Anyone with a love of theater and music who got dragged to it?
