In honor of seeing Avenue Q today, I figured I would do another quick Broadway Mash-Up for you all.
Sweeney Todd’s RENT: A barber seeks revenge for his wrongful imprisonment by killing his customers and making pies out of their flesh. The plan seems to be working until he can no longer afford his rent and an AIDS epidemic sweeps London from serving the meat of those infected with the virus. He learns there is no place like London to live la vie bohème.
Beauty and the Grease: In a tale as old as time, a young girl is kidnapped by the most popular boy in school who will lose his popularity if he doesn’t make her fall in love with him before graduation. After he admits to her that he is a beauty school dropout, she realizes he is the one that she wants.
Kinky Waitress: When a pregnant waitress stuck in a small town and a loveless marriage inherits a failing shoe factory from her father, she decides to turn it into a pie production factory with the help of a drag queen. After a terrible fling with her doctor, she decides she has a history of wrong guys and makes the brave decision to take her baby and go back to London with the drag queen. She opens up her own pie shop there in a recently vacated bakery on Fleet Street.

Fiddler on the Mamma!: A young girl in Anatevka must find out who her father is before her arranged marriage due to the fact that her mother was known not only as the town dancing queen, but also the town slut. Hey every town needs one, it’s tradition!
La Cage aux Hairspray: A drag queen and his partner audition to be on the coolest dancing show on t.v. and become instant hits with their slogan, “We are Who We Are.” Meanwhile, the mother of their competition, a highly conservative bigot tries to squash all hopes of them winning by giving all of Baltimore crabs.
