Universal Studios Hollywood is going to stage Creature From the Black Lagoon: The Musical beginning in spring of 2009. Admission is included with your ticket price, so no need to start saving your nickels now.
Am I the only one disturbed that “hilarious” was used twice there? Now, granted, admittedly the original movie is a bit smirky when you’re looking at a guy in a Fish Man costume menacing a boatful of people. And you could say that for a lot of classic movies–but within the context of their original release, they deserve a bit of respect. Still–“hilarious”? I know it’s just a theme park musical, but still.
Now, granted, if these guys were writing the musical, we’d give it a pass. Anyway, I got some swag for the first person to review this theme park musical for me. There, I’ve offered it.
Update: A poster has surfaced (no pun intended) here.
