The Greatest Idea in the World!!!
Showgirls the movie is an absolute classic. It is the entire reason on why I love the cinema. It has everything a good film should have. I am upset that instead of winning Oscars it won Razzies, because this is a true cinematic gem. The creator of this gorgeous piece of mess, Joe Eszterhas has confessed that he is working with the producers of the Broadway hit, Urinetown, to bring Showgirls to the stage and musicalize it! This is like gay Christmas!
He said: “It’s a movie that I wish I’d have written differently, and I wish would have been cast differently. I never agreed with the notion that this movie was accidentally funny. I think it defies the imagination to think that a line like ‘How does it feel not to have anybody comin’ on you anymore?’ isn’t purposely funny. If you have a character named Henrietta Bazoom walking around poppin’ her tits out every 30 seconds, that’s a darkly humorous moment.”
For the musical he will embrace the campiness of the story. It will of course debut in Las Vegas.
