Producer James L. Nederlander has reportedly acquired the rights to make a stage version of "Thriller," "Michael Jackson's iconic music-video spoof of horror films." The show will use music from the albums Off the Wall and Thriller. Nederlander says, "I love the idea of making 'Thriller' a musical. Girl meets boy, they fall in love, boy has big secret, now what?"
I love the song "Thriller" and I somehow never tire of watching people do the dance (be it in the Thrill the World movement or 13 Going on 30 or anyplace else). As opposed to certain other musical news that doesn't seem to make sense, I think "Thriller" might make for a great stage show. What do you think?
