Okay, so I’m behind the times. Today I discovered that 2 years ago, some guy created “Muppet Christ, Superstar” using music from karaoke CDs and his own voice, he redid 10 songs from the opera as if performed by them with only minor changes to the lyrics. It was touching to hear Piggy Magdalene sing:
He’s a frog, he’s just a frog,
And I’ve had so many frogs before
In very different ways
He’s just one more.
And it got me thinking…
How would you recast Casablanca with Muppets?
Of course, Kermit would be Rick, Piggy would be Ilsa, and Rowlf would be Sam, but who would you choose for the other parts? I think Gonzo could be Ugarte, but what about the others?
