Comment:        SHK 10.1991 Something Scary

I wonder if Hamlet the Musical is scarier than Otello the Opera? Or
Hamlet the ballet? Or 'My Private Idaho' as history play?

Interesting point: did serious lovers of Dickens find 'Oliver!' the Bart
musical, as scary then? Is the only way we can deal with desperation by
guying it? I really don't know what the answer is here.
