The world is awash with reboots, relaunches, and remixes.
It’s the rage in television, as evidenced by the return of Will & Grace, Roseanne, and MacGyver.
Movies aren’t immune, either — Casino Royale, Star Trek, and The Amazing Spider-Man all tried to relaunch their respective franchises to various success.
This is also common in music, with things like Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do”, Machine Gun Kelly’s “Bad Things”, and DJ Khalid/Rihanna’s “Wild Thoughts” build on Right Said Fred’s “I’m Too Sexy”, Fastball’s “Out of My Head”, and Santana’s “Maria”, respectively.
And before you think it’s just the media, I’d point out that the Trump administration’s current situation is more or less The Watergate Speed-Run, so it’s literally everywhere, people!
Anyway, the reason I bring this up is to point out that good ideas are coming out of the mothballs all over the place, and it’s about time I decided to drag my best idea — eD! The Musical — out of retirement.
