Options October 21, 2018: Radio: The Musical!
On this week’s Love Is Only Sleeping, Bronwyn B will attempt to construct a three-hour musical made entirely out of songs from other musicals (primarily of the unusual, obscure, and/or terrible variety). This FrankenMusical will take you from overture to finale and include all your favorite musical tropes, like the I Want song and the eleven o’clock number, as well as all the ones you don’t really care about, like the entr’acte and the irrelevant duet between two tertiary characters!

Whew! I was wondering what would become of our protagonist.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:14am Scraps:

I was lying down listening happily. It was great!

Oh, it was on again? Awesomely awesome!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:15am Scraps:

Now I’m going back to lying down!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:50am jkeigh:

A belated good morning. Finally got the gumption to get out of bed and make a cup of tea and go over to the keyboard. Enjoying the show so far. I am wondering though, not knowing much about musicals...exactly how successful was Bat Boy: the musical?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:53am BronwynB:

good morning jkeigh! bat boy is surprisingly popular, the off broadway production won a ton of awards. it's a funny show
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:59am fred:

Good morning Bronwyn and all
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:04am BronwynB:

good morning fred :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:17am Stanley:

But why are the English accents so bad in American musicals?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:19am Stanley:

Straight out of the Dick Van Dyke school of 'Cockney'
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:19am BronwynB:

that i don't know. you'd think after a million years of drama school they'd be able to get it right. it goes the other way too- the imelda staunton gypsy on the west end is wonderful but some of the supporting characters' american accents are painful
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:24am Stanley:

I'm sure that is also the case
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:25am Dave in Vermont:

If you have a duet between two tertiary characters does that make it a senary tune?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:29am fred:

I missed most of this show, but I enjoy it much more than expected. I think this was a wonderful idea
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:31am BronwynB:

@dave: is that a base 6 joke??

@fred: thank you so much!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:34am Dave in Vermont:

well, y'see...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:52am Cmurtha:

Objects in the Rear View Mirror is going to be in my head all day now, not a bad thing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:59am fred:
