Workers of the World, Dance!

| A Shanghai theater company has announced that it will produce and stage a musical adaptation of Karl Marx‘s Das Kapital next year. Its creators say their project was inspired by a recent Japanese manga adaptation of Marx’s anti-capitalist tome. Does this mean we’ll have to sit through an operatic adaptation of The General Theory of Employment, Interest, and Money at the Kennedy Center sometime soon? [%comments]

I can imagine a rather splendid aria based around Keynes' musing: "For at least another hundred years we must pretend to ourselves and to every one that fair is foul and foul is fair; for foul is useful and fair is not."

You realize this can only mean we're fast approaching a future where "Ron Paul: The Musical" is a reality?

Please say Robert Wilson will be writing/directing. It could be a series with "The Life and Times of Joseph Stalin".
