I've been away from blogging for a little while; in part that was because I took a fantastic little trip to New York City. It was fantastic (but then, what's not to love about Manhattan?) The purpose of my trip was to see some Broadway shows. I saw "Rock of Ages" which was excellent, and I saw "Memphis" (not bad...) and "American Idiot" (very disappointing).
I kept walking past signs and ads for "ENRON" - yes, a musical about Enron... I wish I had cgone to see it - the reviews have been great. It sounds loopy enough (and original) that it just may be a great stage performance. "Addams Family" is being universally panned.
So - now for the point of this blog posting: is there any whodunit that you could visualize on stage (as a musical)? I know The Mousetrap was on Broadway forever, but it was not a musical (although there may have been versions...)
The only thing that leaps to mind is Poe - I could see his works being put to music and staged.
Any other ideas?
