OK, the linked article has lots of words, and very few of them have anything to do with pirates. The gist of the story is as follows:
1. Disney clearly has a strong desire these days to turn anything and everything they own into a musical.
2. Disney has recently purchased the domain names “PiratesOnBroadway.com” and “PiratesOnTour.com.”
So what’s it mean? My bet, probably nothing – at least not yet. I’m sure a company like Disney registers a domain name for every half-baked idea that flutters across their brains – they have too, just in case they later decide to develop it. So these domain registrations probably don’t mean a thing – until they do mean something, which will likely be scary. Like Barbossa and Davy Jones singing a duet scary. But I’ll still probably buy one of the commemorative T shirts.

I don’t know about this. Pirate the Caribbean the Musical doesn’t seem like a good idea. On the other hand, a musical about a serial killer sounds terrible, but I think Sweeney Todd was great. I guess I’ll have to wait and see.
On a related note, take a look at this picture:
See if you can spot how the ride is pirate in more way then one.
Oh, I’m sure it will happen. Pirates of the Caribbean the Musical will be such a success that they’ll probably make a movie version of the musical after that.
When do auditions start?
Agh! Bastards didn’t even tell me they already had it in development! I may be given a clout to the ear for this, but I’ve had the very same idea more or less fleshed out for years. If they put The Little Mermaid onstage, why not Curse of the Black Pearl? But only Black Pearl. Because after that, it gets way too convoluted, and we’d have to make an entire song-and-dance routine called “I’ve Got a Jar of Dirt!”
I’m with Red. Pirates of the Caribbean the musical: the movie part 2: the search for Walt’s balls.
I”d haul me carcass t’ the theatre and give it a look!
