Today Is The Day I Capitalize On The Success of Hairspray With Other Ideas for Movie Musicals Based on Grooming Products

  • Gel! A rollicking musical set in the over-abundant 80’s, telling the story of Dirk Meadows, a successful Wall Street tycoon who just can’t stop singing the praises of this over-performing stocks. Well-dressed, with a severe gel-encased hair style, he’s got the women lusting after him and the competitors shaking in their boots.
  • Pomade! Patrick Pomade has got the world’s greatest idea next to velcro — it’s a pomade that has a firm hold while still keeping ones’ hair silky to the touch. But Millie Pomade, his horrible evil sister, has got other ideas for his unique invention. She wants to use it to give the Soviets the kind of power they need to win the Cold War. Set in the 50’s, this down home country-western musical has such memorable songs as “Pom-pom Pomade” and “I Feel Product In My Hair That Isn’t There.”
  • Rogaine! Present day musical set in the world of Generation X, now reaching their 40’s and combing over all their assets so to speak. Follows Charles Wigglesworth, a conservative radio talk show host who often breaks into song while attacking liberal callers. Your feet will be tapping to musical numbers “Republican, Republi-CAN’T” and “My Hair Ain’t There” as Charles Wigglesworth realizes the honor in truth and the truth in honor.
  • Hairlights! A clever play on the phrase “highlights” this off-Broadway charmer will sing its way into your heart as you live the experiences of dull, drab librarian Keelie Evans, a teenager with zero friends and zero confidence. But when she meets the after-hours security hunk Dabble Steemer (who happens to be a hair-highlighting hobbyist) her black and white existence turns up roses! You’ll double over in laughter with such Busby Berkeley-esque choreographed numbers as “Do-a-Dye” and “Dewey Decimal is My Darlin’ No More!”
  • Licenex! This sci-fi musical comedy is ahead of its time, retelling the story of Invasion of the Body Snatchers with music. But instead of an alien infestation, it’s all about lice. Infesting people’s scalps. Government investigators Hank Worber and Sissy Keen stumble upon a small midwestern town in Oklahoma where everyone’s heads have become taken over by lice. They try disease control but only music seems to be the alien’s downfall. You’ll be on the edge of your seat tapping your toes with musical numbers, “I Don’t Like Lice, No Sir I Don’t” and “I Shave, You Shave, We All Shave.”

Why The Film ‘The Sound of Music’ Is Completely Unrealistic

If you haven’t seen the movie The Sound of Music you may now go to lunch.

If you have, then you’re more than aware that people often call it one of the most “significant movie musicals ever.” Based on a successful book turned Broadway production by Rodgers and Hammerstein, the musical tells the story of the von Trapp family — run by a widowed WWI captain without a wife, he hires a woman (Maria) to take care of his mischievous children and everyone sings, falls in love and generally lives happily ever after. The film version, starring Julie Andrews, was also wildly successful despite one very significant issue…

…that the film The Sound of Music is completely unrealistic.
