"Have you ever heard of the Planet of the Apes?"

"The movie or the planet?"

So I was on What We All Want today, reading the usual bit of insight from Austintacious, when I came across a post about High Fidelity being remade into a Broadway musical. This even came with a link to the play's website that contained a music video and four songs from the show, including a celebratory song about Rob and Laura having a 9% chance of getting back together. Ick. But it made me think about this classic Simpsons bit of the Planet of the Apes musical, so I guess some good did come from it.

I heart (<3) High Fidelity, but I hate (H8) the idea of this Broadway adaptation. And to think: for the price of a ticket, you could probably buy a copy of the DVD, book, and soundtrack. And then have money left over for ice cream. And who doesn't love ice cream? Broadway fans, that's who. Bastards. So raise your glass to this abomination's horrible failure.

High Fidelity...the Broadway Musical?!!?

That's right, and it won't be televised!

They don't allow cameras in the theaters.
