Every April first, someone plunks my magic twanger and I can’t help myself.
So, sadly, I must confess that Wild Cards is NOT coming to Broadway.
(But wouldn’t it be swell if it did? After I finished writing that blog post, I was eager to see that show myself. And Kevin went ahead and wrote all the lyrics to one of the songs).
My thanks to Devilish Diana Rowland, who came up with the idea, and to Kevin Andrew Murphy and Christopher Rowe, who suggested some of the song titles.
And of course extra special thanks as well to John Hodgman, Sibel Kekilli, and the amazing Lin-Manuel Miranda, who went along with the gag and gave me permission to take their names in vain. (Though I think John really does want to play Dr. Tod. If there’s anyone out there casting for a mad scientist, take note).
