Batman & Robin: The Musical

Would it make the Spiderman musical look like Le Mis? Probably. Would it be hilarious? Most likely.

It's easy, mmkay?
A Mars Attacks!-based musical.

A production of the Reefer Madness musical where everything is played dead seriously, with no-one hamming anything up for comedy purposes, or using comedic timing, and some of the jokes (like the placard woman) get axed.

This isn't because I agree with the things the characters say. It's not because I think it deserves to get taken more seriously. It's to take revenge on people who make musicals I like as dramas into overt comedies. tongue

Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency: The Musical.

I don't care what you say. I've already started working on it.
Let's Rock.
[up]That made me laugh hard enough to snort in a public place. I say yes.

I had a dream a while ago where a voice compelled me to write a musical based on Cee-Lo Green's The Lady Killer. The story is a volunteer firefighter Broken Ace with a Gold Digger girlfriend falls in love with another woman and stressed over it as his girlfriend tries to seduce his friends and his rival, The Ace. I've never written anything beyong a 5 minute sketch (besides prose), but I woke up thinking it was the idea of the century and was determined to get started.

All of my friends laughed when I explained it to them.
I've had the strange idea of a musical set to Fall Out Boy songs detailing the utter pettiness of the US 2008 elections since... well, almost 2008. I'm sure I would be this musical's only interested party.
Okay, a production of Assassins performed at a major baseball stadium.

Classical Crossover artists doing The Desert Song or any operetta. Chloe Agnew from Celtic Woman as Margot Bonvalet, Lisa Kelly as Clementina, Orla Fallon as Susan, Meav Ni Mhaolchatha as Edith, and Lynn Hilary as Azuri with Andrea Bocelli as Pierre Birabeau/the Red Shadow. Get other male artists who can act to play General Birabeau, Bennie, Sid El Kar and Ali Ben Ali, as well as Hassi and Mindar (members of the Red Shadow's band). Assorted male and female choir members would play Riffs, French soldiers, soldiers' wives, guards and Ladies of the Brass Key. Operettas fit CC quite well as they're in the light classical music genre.

A biopic musical in English about Fulgencio Batista, former dictator of Cuba, covering the period from his early life and military career to just before the Communist takeover, in a similar style to Evita. Anyone else like this idea?

In fact:

The money rolled in from side to side,

As Fulgencio's hands reached far and wide.

Cabarets, casinos added to the stash,

That's why Havana flowed with dirty cash.

Parody of "And The Money Kept Rolling In"

A musical tribute to BDSM that only masochists could watch. It'd be all Britney Spears music.

Game of Thrones: The Musical

I also would like one musical where the male love interest is baritone or base and gets to just dominate every song he's in, like Elphaba in Wicked.
I'm a critical person but I'm a nice guy when you get to know me. Now, I should be writing.
Three-Puppet Saluter
CATS, but cutting a few of the songs in order to make room for a plot where Gus winds up going toe-to-toe with Macavity while progressively reconciling himself to the similarities between Grizabella and himself - redemptive capacity included. Growltiger's Last Stand gets performed in the climax.

I really think a play that starts out as this really dramatic, almost Shakespearean plot, but turns into a musical out of nowhere right before the second act would be pretty great.

Wanderer (Not Lost)
One suggested at our last theater show was Titus Andronicus, as performed with profane hand puppets as in Avenue Q. I'm forseeing a bit of eyerolling when Lavinia draws her message out entirely using her mouth given the usual methods of sock puppets for such things...
