Universal Pictures Stage Productions has hired the Barenaked Ladies to write the music, Michael Mitnick to handle the libretto, and Casey Nicholaw (co-director and choreographer of The Book of Mormon) to choreograph and direct. Jeffrey Richards, Jerry Frankel, and James L. Nederlanders are producing, along with original Animal House film producer and founding publisher of National Lampoon magazine Matty Simmons.
I like the Barenaked Ladies and think they were a good choice for this but in general, do not want. And you just know it’s going to have “Shout” in there. Ugh.
