Honestly, when I first learned from frequent commenter Broadway Baby that "Mask" was being made into a stage musical, I never doubted for one second that he had to be referring to the Jim Carrey flick. Right?
Forget the ridiculous 1994 movie. We're talking the 1985 Cher/Eric Stoltz tearjerker. I guess there are some eerie similarities.
VH1's "The Best Week Ever" describes Mask as:
...the most exciting thing to happen to the Theater World since Carol Channing hired a new wigmaker.
With a book by Anna Hamilton Phelan and score by Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil, Mask - A New Musical is being performed under Richard Maltby's direction at the Left Coast's Pasadena Playhouse through April 20.
Let's just say I'm not looking forward to seeing this advance to a theatre near you.
This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).
