Another Sign Of The Apocalypse: Duck Dynasty: The Musical Review

Sadly, this is a real thing that exists and is not from the Onion:

The New York Times reports that a 90-minute show titled The Duck Commander Family Musical with actors in the roles of the Robertson family has plans to open in Las Vegas. Though it sounds like a cross between Waiting for Guffman‘s Red, White and Blaine and, as Frank Rich pointed out on Twitter, something out of a Mel Brooks movie, the show actually has some Broadway pedigree, with Jersey Boys producer Michael David developing it.

The family, however, has been at the center of some controversy ever since Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson made some comments about homosexuality. David, for his part, told the Times that, “the show will end up challenging the views and assumptions of people across the political spectrum, more than most theater does.” And as for those remarks that David and Jeff Calhoun—the Broadway veteran directing the project, who is gay and married—found offensive?

1. Sounds like a remake of "The Producers"

Deliberately trying to produce a flop and coming up with "Springtime for Hitler"
