Status: RealI've been compiling a list of odd (but real) musicals. So far I have:
- Fight Club, the Musical
- An opera based on the Strunk & White style guide
- Men are from Mars, Woman are from Venus (the musical)
- Jerry Springer, the Opera
- A musical based on the Labour Party's 1997 election manifesto (unconfirmed)
While Thalidomide groups have generally backed the new show, they admit that some members have been offended by Mat's work in the past. Dr Martin Johnson, director of the Thalidomide Trust, said: "We think it's great someone as badly disabled as Mat is making a great career in this industry. Many of the people we support wholeheartedly approve of him because his aim has always been to challenge society's attitudes towards the disabled."
