I’m thinking of writing a grand rock opera, like classic rockers The Who used to roll out every other year back in the 1970’s.
Take for example their seminal classic “Tommy” – about a deaf, dumb, blind and obviously politically incorrect pinball wizard. My plan is to incorporate something similar, yet even more relatable, to millions upon millions of people.
“Tummy” would be a rock opera that anyone carrying a few extra pounds around the middle could relate to. It will be about a deft, plump kind boy, who sure plays a mean gumball. Or something like that. But the hook is that he’s overweight, which I hope to parlay into a marketing campaign with LA Weight Loss, and Jenny Craig T Nelson.
All I have left to do is write the script, the songs and overcome a few other hurdles – like convincing a group or theatre company to take it on.
I’ll get on that after breakfast….Chow for now!!
