What would YOU like to see turned into a musical/opera?

If you can come up with anything less likely than Nixon in China, I'll be impressed.

I think the Corbyn episode might be worth a few tunes.

There actually was a Lolita musical by John Barry and Jay Lerner, but it didn't do well. For some reason.

We left her in the hotel room (Room! Room!)

She went missing very soon (Soon! Soon!)

Should've hired a childminder

How will we ever find her?

If I was a latterday Max Bialystock, I'd be totally putting that on.

Jeremy, Jeremy, just look at the mural

Surely you see that its problems are plural!

You think that just free speech is a factor?

Jeremy, get out your protractor!

Look at the noses, look at the faces,

Can't you see that the noses are racist!

Definitely potential in Jim Callaghan and the Winter of Discontent.

Zelensky has a hell of a life story so far, but sadly the most dramatic portion is only just being written.

Only Fools And Horses The Musical already exists, but what about other sitcoms? Terry and June The Musical perhaps.

Is he the one who met a random stranger on Clapham Common and in a ‘moment of madness’ invited them home for a meal?

Charles II - The Musical!

Post-beheading Scene

Dancers dressed as executioners nimbly perform a a routine throwing the severed head to each other like a basketball. From the corpse, jets of blood spray up like ornamental fountains in a town square in time to the music. All cast sing...

Hand me the head! Hand me the head!

The king is dead!

Hand me his head!

He was born a Fifer.

Now he's a no-lifer.

Hand, hand, hand me his head!

#13 that's the one, Shadders

Later caught with his trousers down in a lay-by, where he claimed to be "watching badgers"

Some great material there, I feel.

Later caught with his trousers down in a lay-by, where he claimed to be "watching badgers"

Stone-faced traffic cop: And where exactly were these badgers, sir?

Moaty - The Musical

One man's coke fuelled attempt to bring an armed siege to an end.

Three way call and response song:

Officer: Look out! He's got a gun!

Moat: I'm just too tired to run

Officer: I'll set my taser to stun

Moat: Get ready pigs here I come

My rock opera The Bad Boys of Brexit only has two beheadings, but there's also a surprise lampposting in the encore.
