First a Tupac musical, now Animal House?!
On the 30th anniversary of John Belushi's death, it was announced Monday that his most iconic flick will be headed to Broadway.
Animal House: The Musical will be loaded with talent in and outside Broadway. The score will be composed by the Barenaked Ladies and The Book of Mormon's Casey Nicolaw will direct and choreograph the musical.
Belushi died on March 5, 1982 from a speedball and friend Penny Marshall remembers the late comedian:
I swear, you’d walk down the street with him, and people would hand him drugs. And then he’d do all of them — be the kind of character he played in sketches or Animal House.
We can't wait to see how the flick translates to its Broadway rendition.
Thoughts? Do U think an Animal House musical is a good idea?
