A Rob Ford Musical…For Real This Time!
We don’t want to say we told you so, but…An idea on EverythingZoomer.com months ago, now a Rob Ford musical is actually coming to Toronto
The curtain rises and Toronto Mayor Rob Ford makes his entrance, dancing across the stage to a medley of show tunes that includes, “All That Crack,” “Don’t Cry for Me Etobicoke,” and “Memories – I Have None, I was in a Drunken Stupor.”
No, we’re not talking about the Rob Ford musical making headlines with calls for open casting in Toronto today. We’re talking about the Rob Ford musical that EverythingZoomer.com conceived and wrote about way back in November – complete with an all-star cast, plot details, and original songs (you can read all about it by clicking here).
Inspired by My Fair Lady, EverythingZoomer.com’s Ford musical, called My Fair Ford, revolves around a bet made by former Toronto mayors David Miller and John Sewell, who believe they can turn Rob Ford “from a public relations disaster into a respectable mayor in ample time to kick off his reelection campaign.”
Our Ford musical was conceived as an online prank, so this weekend’s news of a real upcoming Ford musical made our ears perk up. And though our plotlines may differ, we’re happy to lend a hand however we can. I mean, “I’m Gonna Wash that Crack Right Outta of My Pipe” – now that’s a show-stopping number!
