Robin Hamilton asked about Return to Forbidden Planet:

No.  I haven't come across anything on a pc version.  The Return... play
was "Shakespeare's long-lost rock musical masterpiece," written by Bob
Carlton.  The Forbidden Planet characters reclaimed their Shakespearean
names, so Morbius became Dr. Prospero, Altaira Miranda, and Robby the
Robot Ariel.

I was scanning the posts in a hurry to get out the door and caught only
a brief mention of Return to the Forbidden Planet, the musical.  I don't
know what the context was but if anyone had questions about the show i
just directed the band for a production of it that was very well
received.  It is a very funny show, especially to those who know Will's
stuff inside and out.  Anyway, if there were no questions feel free to
ignore this post.
