Sisi and Sissy boys
About a week ago I was invited to attend the musical “Elisabeth” in the the “Theater an der Wien“.This was the second time I attended a musical show. And although Iappreciate obviously high production quality (hydrolic platforms,costume changes every other minute, &c, &c) I just do not enjoythe music. Again it has a high production quality but for some reason Musicals do not appeal to me that much. Is it because of the cliches? Idon’t know, rock-n-roll is full of 3-chord cliches. Is it the lackof irony? That could well be, because there is one musical, which I have never seen, butlistened to many many times and that is full of irony. “Thing Fish”.
So what about this topic title… Sisi and Sissy boys.
Well as you all known “Elisabeth” Empress of Austria – Queen of Hungary was called “Sisi”. And the first line in “Thing Fish” is:
Once upon a time, musta been ’round October, fewyears back, in one o’ dose TOP SECRET LAB-MOTORIES de gubbnint keep stashed away underneathVirginia, an EVIL PRINCE, occasion’ly employed asa part-time THEATRICAL CRITICIZER set to woikin’on a plot fo de systematic GENOCIDICALREMOVE’LANCE of all unwanted highly-rhythmicindividj’lls an’ sissy-boys!
