I'm still processing the idea that James L. Nederlander, of the powerful Nederlander Producing Group of America, has bought the rights to make a Broadway musical out of Michael Jackson's "Thriller." Or more to the point, I suspect, to build a Broadway musical around John Landis' nine-minute zombie-dance video (Landis, by the way, just filed suit against Jackson, so that could be sticky).
Nederlander seems to envision the overarching plot as a variation on "boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl," except that here it would be "girl meets boy, they fall in love, boy has big secret, now what?"
Now what, indeed. Is his big secret that he's a werewolf, as the video implies (via Jackson's now sublimely creepy line, "I'm not like other boys"), or a zombie?
Maybe they could get some kind of work release deal for these Filipino prison inmates.
