Cocktail to be turned into a musical

The only thing that seems to be more prevalent than turning a classic 80s TV show into film, is turning a classic 80s film into a musical. And here we go again! Cocktail – the Musical!

Yes, I’m serious! The film that made smash hits out of songs like Kokomo, Hippy Hippy Shake, and Don’t Worry Be Happy is now apparently going to be made into a stage musical… I know! I wouldn’t have believed it, if I hadn’t read it in The Guardian!

I guess the “flare” and fancy bar work will make for interesting viewing, but I do wonder how they’ll tackle that infamous “waterfall” scene…?

Want to know more? – click here to read The Guardian article.*

*Look out for the biggest “what the?” later in the article where it mentions a 2004 musical version of When Harry Met Sally – starring Alyson Hannigan and Luke Perry!!?? (thanks to a good friend of The Big Cheese for that excellent spot!!)

    The “what the”s kind of continue with stage adaptations of Rainman and Shawshank Redemption……… yourself the money and rent the original!
