Prom Queen the Stage Musical? Really?

OK, maybe the guys at Big Fantastic shouldn’t hit up Stephen Sondheim for advice just yet. But when interviewed by APM’s Marketplace yesterday, former Disney head and current Torante CEO Michael Eisner admitted that he’d been approached by a producer with the idea of adapting the teen drama web series as a touring musical (clip below):

According to Eisner, “Who knows where that will end up?” but he does close that point on a idealistic bit of rhetoric about synergy: “The point I’m making is: Do it well, tell a good story, try to make a little cultural noise and you have something of value.” I don’t know what value other people will get out of a Prom Queen musical, but personally I’m holding out for a dance number about pineapples.
