Musicals

Oklahoma!

Corn grows too high. Everyone sings about chickens, cows and Kansas City. In the end it all makes for a pretty good official state song.



Chicago:

Killer women in jail perform killer dances.



Fiddler On the Roof:

Fiddle player watches small town antics from roof top.



Rocky Horror Picture Show

Couple goes house hunting. Ends up at fun party.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.
