"Let's go crazy, Broadway-style!"

If you missed the news, Michael Jackson's music video "Thriller" is slated to be transformed into a lavish Broadway production, a la jukebox musicals like ABBA's "Mamma Mia!" and Billy Joel's "Movin' Out."

Meanwhile, that long-awaited (well, long-reported) Spider-Man musical promises to be the "most expensive production in theater history." With a price tag of some $35 million just to set up, and a weekly running cost of $1 million, the show would "have to run about 8,000 years in a Broadway theater just to break even."
