THEYRE BAD, YOU KNOW IT
If you think about how many bad musicals actually make it to Broadway, imagine what a wasteland the genre is at its sappiest and most melodramatic. Fortunately for Off-Off-Broadway, the Bad Musicals Festival 08 is not here to celebrate the failures of musical theater: Theyre really good plays that are delightfully naughty, explain the producers. Over the course of the next several weeks, new works will be presented in the following categories: Is That a Gun in Your Pocket?; Foreign & Familiar Bodies (OBGYNia, a Sci-Fi Musical Romp! sounds like a winner); Politics & Poopsy; Criminally Insane Puppets; and It Aint Kansas Anymore! (featuring The Great Plastic Surgeon of Oz). Obviously, musicals aint Les Miz anymore.
