We're actually sort of intrigued with the idea of this mess!
President Bill Clinton's life story is apparently being adapted into an OPERA called Billy Blythe, which is being described as “a coming of age story set in the late 1950’s in Hot Springs" that “will explain how the natural state helped shape and mold the man we now know as President Bill Clinton.”
The title comes from Clinton's birth name, William Jefferson Blythe III, and instead of focusing on all of the fun and scandalous shiz that went down during his years in office, it will instead be centered around “a pivotal moment in Billy Blythe’s coming of age because he has to stand up to his step-father, Roger Clinton, in a life-changing domestic conflict.”
Lame! We want Sarah Brightman as Monica Lewinsky!
LOLs! If you're going to go bizarre enough to write an opera about Bill Clinton, you might as well go all the way!
