Tonight saw the second instalment of BBC1’s latest advertise-a-musical-for-months-and-then-cast-it-with-performers-too-inexperienced-to-do-it-a-thon ‘Let it
S̶h̶i̶t̶e̶Shine’ (or as I call it: ‘REAL AUDITIONS ARE NOTHING LIKE THIS’).
I didn’t watch it (clearly), but being reminded of how angry seeing just five minutes of it made me last week caused me to mull over what I would call a musical based on the band’s songbook, if I was responsible for it.
Here are a my suggestions:
IDEAS FOR TITLE OF A TAKE THAT MUSICAL:
A Million Love-changes-everything Songs
Babe (with a pig as the lead)
…BUT MY FAVOURITE HAS TO BE:
Jason & His Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat.
"It was Orange, Orange, Orange, Orange..."
(TAKE) THAT’S ENOUGH OF (TAKE) THAT.
