And the musical adaptation of Animal House will be written by… The Barenaked Ladies?
Don't get me wrong, I used to love those silly Canadians, and I'll always hold a special place in my late-'90s heart for them. But when I think of Animal House, songs like "Alternative Girlfriend" and "War on Drugs" aren't the first things that come to mind. Though, on second thought, I can picture them rhyming words with "toga" in rapid-fire succession.
Universal Pictures has also announced that Animal House: The Musical will be directed and choreographed by Tony Award winner Casey Nicholaw, who directed the still pretty much sold out and apparently awesome Book of Mormon. So who knows? Maybe this will be a pretty great show/party. My suggestion to keep it authentic? Free beer.
