Can it possibly get any gayer than this...?
Musical Lestat To Hit Boards

After more than two years of development, Warner Brothers Theatre Ventures on Aug. 23 told the Los Angeles Times that it will be ready to premiere a musical adaptation of Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles at San Francisco's Curran Theatre in December, with a Broadway opening planned for next spring.

Called Lestat and featuring a score by the famed pop writing team of Elton John and Bernie Taupin, the production will star Hugh Panaro, who has appeared on Broadway in Les Misérables, Show Boat and The Phantom of the Opera, the newspaper reported. Also in the cast are Carolee Carmello, Jack Noseworthy, Jim Stanek, Roderick Hill, Michael Genet and Allison Fischer.
Not that there's anything wrong with that.

They should've asked James Marsters (Spike from "Buffy" TV show), since he's got a song-and-dance background. That would have seemed almost incestuous.

uuuggghhhh I hate Anne Rice!!! Her writing is such boring fomulaic piece of trash!

Ohh vampire..spooky...and it's sooo hard being undead, yet so romantic You like guy on guy action? More power too you men have been wtching girl on girl forever. But this for chapter after boring, repeditive chapter???? Please. If I meet another 15 year old , who shops at Hot Topic (tm) and thinks they are Goth and tells me how "Deeply they bleed for Lestat's pain." I'll vomit...Right there.

Sinclair - I agree with your estimation of Anne Rice. She should just write vampire porn and call a spade a spade.
