Subject:        How about "Hamlet! The Musical"?

Today's NYTimes has a story about digital technology on Broadway,
highlighting a flying graveyard in a musical "Dance of the Vampires"
opening next month.   "The set piece makes its debut during a splashy
second-act production number called 'Eternity' in which a dozen campy
vampires suddenly pop out of their coffins and break into song.
(Hamlet's graveyard it ain't.)"

Alas, poor Yorick was not a musical comedy star we could cast in
"Hamlet! The Musical."
