Did you guys know about this? A musical version of Anne Rice’s “The Vampire Chronicles.” Maybe we should let this die a deserved death, ’cause WOW is this bad!
So naturally I had to share 😉
It apparently dates back to 2006, with music by Bernie Taupin (yes, Elton John’s longtime collaborator). I found this when I was on IMDB.com this morning, and noticed that today is Bernie Taupin’s birthday, the big 6-0. Happy Birthday, Bernie!
This particular clip doesn’t have any of the music, but the acting, :::shudder::: is almost painful to watch. How does this stuff get on Broadway? Anyone know if it’s still running? I’m out here on the fringes of civilization, I have no idea what’s going on in New York.
And I thought it was bad when they made a musical out of “Wicked.”
UPDATE 5/23/2010: It just boggles my brain that they tried to make (well, ok, they DID make) a musical out of it. And it wasn’t just Bernie Taupin, Elton John did the score as well. It apparently garnered two Tony nominations, and Anne Rice even discussed it (favorably) on her web site here.
