An idea struck me last night, and I think it would make a great musical.

Super Fly.

I know it sounds ridiculous, but using Curtis Mayfield's amazing soundtrack, and re-arranging it to inject a harder edge and some more energy into it, very similar to Fishbone's great cover of Freddie's Dead: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cmCzc4DEY60

The key scenes could be extracted and used alongside the music. I actually think this could work. What do you guys think?

PS: The reason I'm doing this is because in my school this year we're doing a crappy musical, and I think it would be better if we actually put some of our own work into doing a great one. I just got laughed off when I said this.

EDIT: Also, I don't want to make this into some artsy theatre thing. I want it to be a slightly lighter take on the film. I hate nearly every other musical. I even hate the idea of a musical, but I feel this is something different.

I was having sex with a female dolphin. In the dream I was like:
"YEEEEEEEAAAARGH I'M SCREWIN' A FEMALE DOLPHIN!!!" and when I woke up I was like:
"... wtf"

When I hear musical I think of that terrible movie Hairspray. And when I think of Hairspray I want to cut my wrists.

I can already see where this thread is going.

When I say musical, I don't mean Cats or The Sound of Music. Please don't take it that way.

I mean that we adapt it into a musical. Like somebody doing a metal cover of Mario, we'll be doing a rock-ish funk sort of thing.

Sounds pretty fly, for a rabbi.
