Suppose two guys want to make a Broadway musical about the history of the planet from the beginning of time through the present day. Well, first they'd need some major financial backing, but, when the musical would require a cast of more than 300 actors and cost $83.5 million to produce, how on earth could they present the proposed musical to potential investors? Simple, accompanied only by a piano, the two authors can play all the parts from Adam and Eve to Tokyo Rose themselves--with quick onstage costume changes, of course. Hilarious shenanigans surely ensue.
