This level of trolling is reasonable for Commander Obvious. What do you think of this, everyone?
Ouran High School Host Club The Musical.

I don't know what exactly would be in it, but it would be awesome.

IMO, there are only two reasons why The Blues Brothers has not yet been made into a musical:

  • There are no visual FX in existence that could adequately pull off the car chase.
  • It simply wouldn't be as awesome as the movie.

Other than that, I think it has the potential to be a great show. I just watched it, and spent the whole time thinking "Has anyone tried to adapt this? Has anyone tried to adapt this?"
[up] Yes, they have. It's going to be an off season show in the Chicago theatre district.

There is a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory musical. Mainly using songs from the Gene Wilder film.

If there were more characters, the storyline of Kamelot's Silverthorn and Epica/Black Halo C Ds could make good musicals.

Like for the song "Falling Like the Fahrenheit" I picture the bad guy in the wife's bedroom, strumming a few chords on a cello. The song is beautiful and haunting but the scene is tense because you know this guy's bad news. Finally, just when you think he's going to leave, he runs her through with the cello bow.

American Psycho has just been made into a West End Show with Duncan Sheik (Spring Awakening) doing the music and Matt Smith (yes THAT one) playing Patrick Bateman.

I'd be down for a Kamelot musical. I would also love to see Nightwish's Imaginaerum adapted into a Julie Taymor-style show(Lion King not Spiderman)with surreal set designs and costumes to invoke the dreamscape.

I'd also mention Strictly Ballroom, but that's also happening for real.

[up]Eee! Imaginaerium would kick ass as a Taymor-esque musical. "Scaretale" and "Ghost River" would be amazing.

In the vein of Elisabeth and Evita, a musical about Julie d'Aubigny. The lady was larger than life—a duelist, adventurer, and opera singer. Total rake, in her own way. One of her lovers came about because she wounded him in a duel and later went to check on him, teehee. Oh, and she was bisexual. When her girlfriend got locked in a nunnery, Julie rescued her in a way that got her charged with with kidnapping, body snatching, and arson.

[up]In the vein of Evita, a musical about a male politician— Fulgencio Batista. It would be a tragedy as the idealistic country boy becomes a corrupt dictator.

Speaking of Elisabeth, I would love to see another musical utilize a similar interpretation and depiction of Death.

And Trudeau the Musical anyone? Hell they can just ring up Colm Feore again XD. Seriously though, as any Canuck will tell you, his life was pretty much made to be a musical.

Also a musical about Grace O'Mlley that doesn't suck. Or Boadicea. Written by Enya, or maybe Loreena Mc Kennit.

[up] For that matter, Mort has already been made into a play-why not a musical?

A musical based off of the wife of Walt Disney.

I'd like a musical based on Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness; it shouldn't be too difficult to turn a Concept Album into an actual musical...
