The Online Musical started as a 2010 University of Virginia student project to create an interactive online musical based on audience feeback , called Musical: The Online Musical. It continued after that project finished, moving on to mini musicals (Thomas Jefferson: The Musical, Pokemon: The Musical, Where's Waldo?: The Musical), and other musical works (a dub step treatment of Les Miserables). Their most recent project is less musical, more dystopian: The Beanie Baby Hunger Games. posted by ZeusHumms (12 comments total) 11 users marked this as a favorite

 
You just saved me the $35 it was going to cost to go see "Hunger Games".

I'm still waiting for Big Lebowski: The Musical, featuring the showstopping production number "Forget The Fucking Toe!"

Oh, you didn't post the link to One Day More, which is actually a pretty brilliant video of that song all around, and a more interesting remake of the song.

Really pleased with the quality of voices in those Les Miz remakes, actually.

This is an interesting project all around. Thanks for posting.

Also... the title of this post is entirely from Sondheim's Into The Woods, for those wondering.

That is not a "dub step treament" of anything.

And it's "dubstep," people. For god's sake.

Well, 'dub step' was my spell checker being stubborn, 'treatment' was because I stuck for lack of a better term.

The best thing about going to a college with fine arts conservatories was seeing talent being diverted to the utmost silliness. Talented silliness is valuable.

Am I missing something? Is this supposed to be an original musical? Because that is a lyric from Stephen Sondheim's Into the Woods.

*headdesk* reading comprehension fail. I didn't realize that the title was not one of the lyrics from the Beanie Baby Hunger Games.

Thanks, Hippybear.

Nah, I should have been less coy and more clear with the thread title and the content of the Hunger Games video, which is not a musical at all, just a 11 minute version of the first book, acted out with Beanie Babies.
