It was much better than ‘Cats’: Ladies and germs, ‘Jeremy Lin: The Musical’ (video)
By way of Off the Bench comes this delightful little exercise in musical theater. Straight from the New York Knicks point guard phenomenon hometown of Palo Alto, Calif., comes Kevin Yee’s Jeremy Lin: The Musical.
A brief synopsis from Mr. Yee’s Facebook page:
An epic musical about the (fictional?) teenaged life of Jeremy Lin. Made in under a week with absolutely no budget… but with talented and patient friends who were willing to dance in the rain and dodge wayward basketballs…
Honestly, in light of those vague details regarding the helter skelter nature of its production, I’d say overall, a fine job was done by one and all, in particular by this Kevin Yee fellow. Sure, it’s no The Nightman Cometh, but as alluded to in the title of this post, “I loved it. It was much better than Cats. I would see it again and again.” That’s right: going old school SNL on you whippersnappers.
And finally, I’d be remiss if I did not point out that watching the Jeremy Lin: The Musical video sure as hell beats suffering through an episode of Glee.
