I’d wager that most of you have at some point looked into which song or album was at Number 1 on the day you were born? Or which film was atop the box office chart? How many of you know what was on at the theatre as you were brought into the world? That question had never entered my mind, but a friend on Twitter recently posted the flyer above and, beyond its obvious awesomeness, one fact stood out – I was born during its three-week run! How exciting!!
Clearly I was too young to be taken to see this particular show, but what a line-up – Bugs Bunny, Sylvester, Tweety, Roadrunner, Porky Pig AND Batman, Robin and Wonder Woman – I can’t imagine a more exciting prospect than seeing the Looney Tunes meet DC’s finest.
The Looney Tunes Wiki has a great page about this 1970’s stage show, including images like this one:
I’d also recommend reading the Noblemania blog which has a fantastic set of interviews with the stars of the show, some great cast photos and more about the show and its follow-up Bugs Bunny in Space.
