Horror author Stephen King has collaborated with John Mellencamp for a new musical called Ghost Brothers of Darkland County, and the cast is looking fantastic!

Elvis Costello has just signed on to play a Satanic character (ooh!) named "The Shape", and Sheryl Crow and indie rock queen Neko Case are on board as well.

We have no doubt this will be an amaaaazing musical!

The soundtrack will be epic!

    As much as you claim to be such a fan of Broadway (and in your case with acting, those who never could are condemned to fill seats) you still can't get it straight that there is no such think as a Broadway Soundtrack. It is a CAST RECORDING.

    It is often the case that idiots describe themselves as 'genious' but are ironically ignorant to the fact that the word is spelt 'genius' - much to the amusement of us intelligent people.
    "Like, woah, yeah man, I'm like, such a genious, dude!"
    "Well, you're retarded…"

    The show is called 'Spectacle', and the season 1 shows CD is or is about to be released. It's some tasty stuff.

    Re: take the pickle out – Elvis dropped the pounds a while ago for his Canadian T.V. show mentioned above. He interviews, hosts, and plays onstage with them in an intimate setting. The show is classic; watch it every time I'm up there.

    Wait, is this a movie musical or a stage musical?
