Are You Ready for Basquiat
The Musical?

June 12, 2013 | Marina Galperina

According to Broadway World, “Basquiat The Musical” is getting a private reading on June 24th. That’s Broadway for “Oh shit, it’s happening.” They already have some singing actors picked out. Oh look, there’s a blonde white lady. Uh-oh. Get ready for “Madonna!” Presumably.

Hey, if an Oz spin-off can pump $2.5 billion out of the world, seems like a rational choice. He was an auteur of a visual artist who played a pivotal role in bridging street culture and the “Art World,” but more importantly he was good in with the ladies, died young from an overdose, hung out with Warhol, was a bad, bad boy and did we mention something about Madonna? Because Madonna and stuff.

Should have stopped at…
