Donald Trump Planning Broadway Musical About His Amazing Life

Trump The Musical

This is going to be the best musical. You are going to love this musical.

New York—Sources close to President-elect Trump confirmed yesterday that he has commissioned a musical to be written about his life, but it had nothing to do with a recent trip by Vice President-elect Mike Pence to Broadway to view mega-hit juggernaut “Hamilton.”

Trump has hired actor/musician Gary Sinise to write the musical, as well as the score, based on “the amazing, incredible, all-American, American dream tale of Mr. Trump’s incredible, amazing life,” said the source.

The musical will depict Trump’s humble beginnings as a street urchin during the French Revolution, followed by his short stint as a junkyard cat, leading into how he made his fortune by producing lousy Broadway plays, and touching on his time haunting an opera house and wooing Melania.

“We expect Mr. Sinise to finish up the play by next Tuesday, with casting being finalized and rehearsals starting by Friday, followed up by an off-Broadway run for a week or two in December, and finally selling out huge theaters on Broadway in plenty of time for the inauguration,” the source said. “You’re going to love the new show. It’s the best new show.”

Representatives for Gary Sinise confirmed the former “Forrest Gump” star was “fully committed and very excited” about completing the musical. “When you’re working with such an inspiring and incredible individual as Mr. Trump is, you’d have to try really hard to come up with a lousy show. It’s almost impossible to fail at this. It’ll be great.”

The source for Mr. Trump said the President-elect is already planning on installing a trophy case “for all of the Tony Awards, Drama Desk Awards, Grammy Awards and eventual Oscar award that the musical is bound to spawn. Just wait. If that tree-hugger non-president Al Gore can get himself an Oscar, this show will rack up. Mark my words.”

 

“Hamilton’s” Lin-Manuel Miranda To Bring “The Great Space Coaster” To The Big Screen

The Great Space CoasterNew York—Looking to capitalize on the incredible success of his Broadway smash musical, “Hamilton,” Paramount Pictures confirmed yesterday that Lin-Manuel Miranda has signed on to write, direct and star in a big-screen adaptation/reboot of the classic 1980’s syndicated children’s television program, “The Great Space Coaster.”

Miranda will be working with puppeteer John Tartaglia, who starred on Broadway in “Avenue Q” from 2003 until 2005. The film will combine live action, puppetry and CGI, according to Paramount.

“This will be a bold, innovative, daring film, bringing the joy and camaraderie shown on television in the early ’80s to today’s generation,” a spokesman for Paramount said. “We are very, very excited to work with both John and Lin-Manuel, as well as the rest of the amazing cast to bring these amazing characters to the big screen.”

Also confirmed to be in the cast are Gary Oldman as Gary Gnu, Betty White as the voice of Knock Knock the Woodpecker, Andy Serkis as Goriddle Gorilla and Denzel Washington as the rose-loving elephant, Edison.

Lin-Manuel will play the role of the evil ringmaster M.T. Promises, whose sole mission in life is to recapture the clown Baxter, who drives the Great Space Coaster, and take him back to the circus. Baxter will be played by Keenan Thompson.

Rounding out the cast of the film are Kira Kosarin as Francine, Michael B. Jordan as Danny and Joey Bragg as Roy, the teenage band members spirited away from Earth by Baxter.

Running on first run syndication from 1981 through 1986, “The Great Space Coaster” was a children’s educational television program that centered around a great space coaster that flew kids to an asteroid in space, where they encountered a wide array of colorful, puppet-like characters and sang in a band. Oddly enough, neither Sid nor Marty Krofft had any involvement in the show.
