Oh. My. God.

the - Creature from the Black Lagoon: The Musical - Universal Studios Hollywood: "Initially seeming like a spoof press release, this information has now been confirmed. This show is believed to be replacing Fear Factor Live in the Castle Theatre, timed to catch the publicity surrounding the new Breck Eisner-directed remake of the 1954 classic Universal horror.

Press Release: 2 June 2008

Drawn from Universal’s crypt of classic monsters and updated with spectacular Broadway production values and special effects, “Creature from the Black Lagoon—The Musical,” will rise, live, on stage at Universal Studios Hollywood beginning spring, 2009.

With state-of-the-art stagecraft, acrobatic choreography and hilarious, toe-tapping music, the Creature will be brought to life in a story based on the original screenplay, updated to emphasize the element of romance and just a bit of comic relief. Original new music and dazzling production numbers will keep the attraction contemporary and lively."
