When I read the headline about a musical made from the music of Morrissey and the Smiths on NME this morning I was excited. "Oh boy, won't that be fun!" I thought. Much more fun than the musical I saw posters for all over Europe: We Will Rock You, a musical based on the songs of Queen. Not that there is anything wrong with Queen, but being who I am, with my mancrush on Moz and all, the Smith-related musical is too good to be true.
Then, it got better.
Who, you ask, wants to write this musical?
(Wait for it).
None other than Thomas Lennon and Ben Garrant – formerly of MTV's The State (currently of Reno! 911, Wet Hot American Summer, etc.) Now, I don't even know what to say other than "gasp!"
