Last weekend, I got an email from a friend in which she referred to the closing of the musical “9 to 6”. It was a typo on her part, but my immediate response was, “That must be the sequel!”
As a result, I (along with several hilarious twitterpals) spent the good part of Sunday coming up with other imaginary Broadway sequels. They came so fast and furiously that I didn’t have time to keep up with them all, and they so exhausted me that I needed two days off from twittering !
But in rereading the list – both those tweeted directly to me and those posted with hashtag #FakeBwaySequels – I’m giggling once again.
Here are some of my favorites:
