that is a pretty good headline.

I feel like I should be singing this in my head, but I don't know the tune.

The version in my head really sounds awful and off-meter.

... anyone know offhand if there's a really long foreign word that sums up the above sentiment?

Like when you 'hear' a song that is clearly wrong and bad?

Hugh is correct. Quite a bit of the off-screen  stuff is completely unacceptable

The 1957 TONYs were rigged. Music Man stole it from West Side Story.

I think Scott Rudin was the model for Tom Cruise's character in Tropic Thunder.

Oh man, this is a tough call for me. I've never liked any Romeo & Juliet type storyline, so I'm leaning Music Man. The songs for West Side are better, but Music Man songs are still catchy. Dance numbers are hands down better in West Side Story.  I can see Music Man winning on Robert Preston's charisma alone though...

Too bad Cruise underplayed it.

I feel like all you need to know about Seth MacFarlane is how good he is at delivering this.

This explains how, when Peter Griffin scores a touchdown, he organizes a performance of Shapoopie as his touchdown dance.

Fritterin' away their noontime, suppertime, choretime too!
Get the ball in the pocket
Never mind gettin' dandelions pulled
Or the screen door patched or the beefsteak pounded
Never mind pumpin' any water
'Til your parents are caught with the cistern empty
On a Saturday night and that's trouble
Yes you got lots and lots of trouble
I'm thinkin' of the kids in the knickerbockers
Shirt-tail young ones, peekin' in the pool
Hall window after school, ya got trouble, folks!
Right here in River City
Trouble with a capital "T"
And that rhymes with "P" and that stands for pool!

That's one of the great works of 20th century art.

You know, this sorta sounds like rap to me. Though in 1957 they would have called it patter.  Old is new and something...

Stop rebooting crap.


You get that this is a planned broadway revival and not a movie?

Sir, while we appreciate your love for this show, it isn't an audience participation piece. Patrons are asked to refrain from coughing up hairballs during the performance.

Sorry, but it's going to take a little more than "boss-man is yelly and mean" to get me on the cancel Rudin bandwagon. The man gets award winning critically acclaimed stuff made. Frankly the whole affair has a faint whiff of anti-Semitism to it.

I didn't even know he was on Broadway. Was he the stunt coordinator for Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark?
