Don’t ask me why, dear reader, but at the moment my life seems to be all musicals, detective novels and birthdays. How did that happen? 🙂 Anyway, sticking with that theme, look at this shocker which I found in the metro yesterday. Rabbi Jacob – The Musical. Whatever next? For those of you who aren’t hexagonal (as we say here), “That Mad Adventures of Rabbi Jacob” is a French (my italics) comedy classic about a man who’s forced to disguise himself as a rabbi, one of those films that’s always on TV on high days and holidays (here’s a quick synopsis – what DID we do before Wikipedia?) I know, I know, it doesn’t sound that promising but it is actually quite amusing. But to make a musical out of it? As my friend Sandrine said yesterday: “I don’t think it’ll make it to Broadway.” Here’s a little extract from the movie via the magic of You Tube (what DID we do etc. etc.) Anyway, suddenly my own scheme – with the lovely Nardac – to write a musical version of “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” doesn’t seem quite so outlandish. You have been warned.
