everything really is about obama...

So here's the news you've all been counting the minutes to hear.  Coming to Britain's Covent Garden in 2011 is Anna Nicole Smith: The Opera.  Yup, you read that right.  According to them, they believe the money-grubbing life of the blonde is "perfect fare for transformation into a piece of lyric theatre, a grand musical and dramatic parable for our times."

They even went so far as to ensure that "it is not going to be a horrible, sleazy evening."  Is that a bad sign when you have to say that right off the bat?

My favourite quote so far about this project really has to be this by a longshot:  "It is a very sad story - a larger-than-life American story, as was Puccini's Girl of the Golden West. It will be a slice of our times - of America in the pre-Obama days."
