Kanye West the Musical

When I first heard that there was a musical about Kanye West coming to a stage in Australia I was thinking I wish I could go. Then I looked into it and found out that it was a two man, one hour show with none of Kanye's music and it is not a biography of his life, it only draws from it.  So basically, it is Kanye in name only and they got some mad publicity from using the controversial rapper as their muse.

After even further investigation you find that it is being shown for only two days, three performances and costs a mere $3 to attend. Sounds like it may be one of the best musicals of all time, no? I kid. It better not suck too badly or God only knows it will be the last play the two guys, Phillip Roser and Damien Higginbotham, ever make. Their description of the piece reads:

This is a story of a struggle against the man to become the man. It’s about a guy who took a shot at the throne and didn’t miss. This is the tale of Kanye.

They also add in after that it is a comedy...good Lord. There is only so much someone can take in a hour. After hearing all of this I would still like to see a YouTube taping of the piece. Please and thank you.
