Blogging Bloodworks: March Edition

When you write a musical, you usually have to resign yourself to the following:

1. Your musical will have a main character with dreams.
2. About 10 minutes into the musical, he will tell you what those dreams are, in song.

Dreams in musicals are DREAMS. Mama Rose wants to get up, out and into showbiz. J. Pierpont Finch wants to climb from the mailroom to the boardroom. Eliza Doolittle wants to have a eunuch draw her a lavender bath. Big, important stuff. But what if your character's dream is pretty straightforward and easy to obtain? Like, what if he just wants to make a really good sandwich.

That's the question at the heart of The Great American Deli Musical Part 1. What do we do when are dreams are kind of stupid and not really all that unreasonable? Also, how do you kill a cyborg wolf?

"But wait," you say. "You can't get 90 minutes out of that."

Nope. But I tried.

So you should still come see:
