You know, I always wanted to see Joe's Garage as a stage show. And, poking about zappa.com last night, I found that somebody did it in 2008.
zappa.com notes that the choreographer was Jennifer Lettelleir, and the show won the LA Weekly Theater Award for Best Choreography. Lettelleir links favorable reviews in LA Weekly and Variety. The show was adapted by Pat Towne and Michael Franco and directed by Towne, performed by Open Fist Theatre Company.
I've been hoping to see someone adapt the show as a full-on rock opera for years and years -- glad to hear somebody did it, and I hope it's not the last time.
And I hope there's more video out there somewhere, too.
