How do we make "Springtime for Hitler" bad?

Go To

Nov 10th 2019 at 7:22:58 PM

We make suggestions to make "Springtime for Hitler: A Gay Romp With Adolf and Eva at Berchtesgaden" bad. However, the people will still love it. Why, who knows? Posts should be like this: Poster 1: Make Adam Sandler play Hitler. Poster 2: The people think that this is a comeback for Adam and love it. Every new idea will be added to the previous ideas in like a giant combination of badness. Get going!

Number 1: Replace every "E" with the Bee Movie script.

Unfortunately, the meme crowd digs it, and as a result, gets really into theatre as a whole.

Speaking as a theatre major, the meme crowd already found theatre, so that's nothing new. :P


NUMBER 2: Spend the whole budget putting the show on ice, and don't rehearse the actors.

You know how Lorenzo St. DuBois made everyone think the show was a satire? Well, now all the actors act like he did, and people think it's a satire from the get-go; the show sells like hotcakes.


Number 3: Literally get the actors to start assaulting minorities in the audience. There's no way that can be misinterpreted.

The show becomes highly popular with racists and masochists.

4. The show randomly stops to show the worst parts of notoriously bad movies.

It would be Decoy Protagonist all over the place and it focuses more on the supporting cast which makes the work unique for its time.


7. Have a very questionable pairing as the Alpha Couple. (ex. Incest)

Since people already think it's satire they look for deep subtext in the relationship and create several theories on how it brilliantly and blatantly makes fun of our consumer culture.

8. Have all the lights in the theater be turned off.

Nov 11th 2019 at 7:45:16 AM

The audience thinks that the show is better, since they can't see it. Though they can still hear "Springtime for Hitler".

9. Engage in THE UNEXPECTED DESTRUCTION OF ELABORATELY ENGINEERED ARTIFACTS, to piss off a critic who wasn't even reviewing this show.

Unfortunately, most of the audience aready hates said critic, so the moment got uproarious cheers.

Number 10: fire the orchestra, replace them all with a bunch of cats on a giant keyboard.

The audience is so busy gushing over the cute cats that they don't notice how bad the actual show is.

11. The leads are played by Tommy Wiseau, M. Night Shyamalan, and Kirk Cameron.

Theyre so hammy that the show becomes So Bad, It's Good.

12: Dont have a show at all. Have an empty theater for 2 hours.

They'll think it's some kind of abstract performance art and come anyway.

13. Every single scene is just an Aristocrats skit.

The stand-up crowd now dig the show because they're so familiar with the source material that they have opinions on variations thereof.

14: Have 6 plays being performed onstage at the same time.

The crowd thinks that it's a metaphor, and all the plays are one.

15. Everyone's nude.

Well great, now you've got a suicidal audience. At least they'll go out happily, right?

17. The entire play is done backwards, complete with backmasked dialogue containing... controversial messages.

Unfortunately due to the writers not paying attention some of the subliminal message make people think the play is great.

18 Replace all actors with cardboard cutouts and cheap tape recorders with the lines on it

See response to point 15, only this time the audience have a different fetish.


20. Leave the play as-is. Don't hire some junkie to play as Hitler, and make the play as professionally produced as possible while not changing anything in the actual script.

Remember when the meme crowd discovered theatre through our Bee Movie scheme? Well, now they're back. And they're writing fanfic. Full of even more memes.

22: Perform the show in the crosswalk during rush hour!

Free audience! They're amazed by the play.

23. Kill 3/4 of audience.

Same as the response to #16, except the surviving 1/4 will still enjoy the show despite not being allowed to die.

24. Insert pointless Toilet Humor in random scenes, especially if they're as juvenile as possible.
