    'Creature From the Black Lagoon: The Musical' coming to Universal Studios Hollywood in '09 - Seriously! - Travel - LATimes.com



    I'm excited about this show. Should have great special effects, tons of slapstick humor. Am looking forward to the four cool songs it will boast.

    "The storyline describes “an unexpectedly outrageous, strangely romantic, frequently melodic and often hilarious adventure” that will leave audiences “immersed in the ominous environment of the deepest Amazon” and “enveloped by the exotic sounds and scents of the jungle.” You can’t make this stuff up."

    Your link in post 1 is missing the article. So, I posted a link in post 2 that has it.

    Hope you have a blast at Universal, AtomicBear. I'll probably catch it this summer, myself.

    There's a quote in that article about how it will either be extremely funny or the worst thing since Spider Man Rocks.

    I remember Spider Man Rocks and not very fondly at all. What I would really like to see return to USH is the Western Stunt Show.

    While it could be terrible, the crew working on it is top notch Broadway folks. I am guessing that will help a lot. They are doing a Spiderman musical with direction by Julie "the Lion King" Taymore.

    I hope the creature gets the girl.

    As terrible as many of us found Spiderman Rocks, it had a lot of fans.

    And it was a nice place to go kill 30 minutes when it was so hot outside.

    I actually loved Spiderman Rocks, for the exact reasons that this looks good... I thought it was funny, and I think it was meant to be funny. There was some serious camp value in SR, but it wasn't promoted as campy, so people didn't get it. But once you looked at it from that point of view, it was terrific fun. And having a shirtless hunk swing over your head didn't hurt things.
    Does anyone even bother with signatures anymore?

    The website has been updated with 2 production photos. Any idea if there will be previews prior to July 1st? I, for one, cannot wait for this show. Bring on the camp.

    If this goes well, The Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall will be dressed up as Sleestaks for Halloween, this year!

    I hope this is good because I'd like to see it at Orlando going into the place that currently houses the awful fear factor.

    I really do miss the old Western stunt show though. That was fantastic.

    I really, really enjoyed the show. Very campy, very fun. Definitely NOT for kids

    Great stagecraft, and easily the best show in the Castle Theater since Conan.
