Run-DMC, the Musical?
It's happening, according to Liz Smith (?!). Paula Wagner, Tom Cruise's producer, has apparently been shepherding Rev Run and DMC around Broadway, collecting inspiration for an original musical. "I feel their story lends itself perfectly to the stage," Wagner told Smith. "This project has been a passion of mine for some time and I couldn't be more thrilled to be working with them." OK! Can't wait to find out who killed Jam Master Jay. There was also talk, earlier this year, of a Run-DMC biopic. And of course, they have their own street sign now. And our children, sick as they will be about this rap group they do not care about, will not thank us for any of this. Run-D.M.C. Hip-Hops to Broadway [WowOWow]
