Fight Club, The Musical
Playbill is reporting that Chuck Palahniuk's hyper-masculine novel Fight Club (which was made into a movie starring Edward Norton) may come to the stage as a musical. This news was reported by Palahniuk himself at a recent book reading. But still, it's raised a few skeptical eyebrows. After all, musicals tend not to be the first thing that spring to mind when you think of manliness and bare-knuckled boxing. What's next: Fight Club, the Ice Ballet? Fight Club, the Synchronized Swimming Version? Nevertheless, Ain't It Cool News thinks the rumor is true, so perhaps it is. Or maybe Palahniuk was just pulling everyone's leg.

Well, why not? There's an opera in the National Theatre in Prague called Nagano - about the Czech Republic's Ice Hockey victory over Canada in the Winter Olympics. Strange things are made these days...

I rather think that a Fight Club musical would work rather nicely, assuming the music is in the techno/rock mode. Imagine a rock version of "Chemical Burn"...

No, no, no, it should be a really high pitched, fluffy broadway musical. That's the only way it would be worth a damn.
