Purple Rain the musical?

I don't know if this topic has ever come up on the org but do you think Purple Rain would work as a musical? 'Thriller Live' and 'We will Rock You' seem to be successful so why not PR? If this ever happens, would you go and see it?

I don't Know... Maybe If they wanted to Make PR As A musical, They would want to Put Justin Bieber As The Kid, Or maybe one of those "Artist" That we have today... And I wouldn't go to see a Shit Like that even tho I'm 15 lol

Me, too! lol

Here's what bothers ME:

Prince died of an overdose of the drug Fentanyl. Of which, it is very highly fucking likely that he never even knew he'd taken.

I guess the OP means on a stage, like Broadway.

I suppose it could, but it works better as a movie.

"Answer me, answer me,....." Stomp, stomp....

"Answer me!!!!" Stomp, stomp, stomp.....

"Aaaaaaannnnnnswerererere,. meeee heee heee heeeee, " spin, spin, flale hands in the air up high!

"Motherfucker, motherfucker, motherfucker!!!!!!" hands up in a victorious y-shape now to resounding applause from the audience.

Sure - they didn't stick with the movie versions of Tommy or Hairspray when they made them for Broadway. I doubt they'd get a lead that would be able to play lead guitar though.

Yes it comes up every now and then. I know I've made a thread way back about it and I'm sure others did before me.

I think it could be a huge successful venture but he'd fuck it up because the only way it would work would be to hand it over to folk who are knowledgable and successful with stage productions (theatre) and he'd insist on being all up in it, thus fucking it the fuck up. lol

'McMusicals' like these are the reason proper theatre is now pretty much dead! mad

It won't work. And wouldn't Prince have to OK this vision anyway? Don't think it would see the light of day.

THIS.

Prince will meddle the shit out of something.

I mean, I was excited when I found out he would finally be releasing an accoustic album "the Truth', but a bit perpelxed as to why he had to add all that studio nonsense in some of the tracks.

Musicals really aren't my thing...... *breaks out into spontaneous song*

Musicals aren't really my thing,

Where everybody jumps up and sings

If only I had a pair of wings

I would fly away and be a king

See, they suck. disbelief

Please, lets not ruin Prince's music by making a fucking musical out of it. Ben Elton has already ruined Queen for me. Anything ending in "..., the musical" is a bad idea...unless its "The Death of the Musical, the Musical".
