Musicals and horror are two different genres. Musicals based on horror movies have been attempted in the past. One more attempt, Redrum: The Unauthorized Musical Parody Of the Shining, is in the works. It’s aiming for a Halloween 2015 debut. The book and lyrics were created by Joe Lovero and Jon Hugo. Alice Ripley from Next To Normal will be playing Wendy and Douglas Sills from The Scarlet Pimpernel will be playing Jack. No word on the rest of the cast.
This could be interesting. A parody of The Shining might just work. This would be amazing to see live. I can’t help but wonder what humorous twists will play out. If you’re creative enough, you can make almost anything funny. This is one of those ideas that’s just crazy enough to work. Horror fans, what do you think of this news?
