Universal Preps Black Lagoon Musical
Source:Universal Studios Hollywood
June 2, 2022


Boasting Broadway production values and special effects, Creature from the Black Lagoon - The Musical will swim on stage at Universal Studios Hollywood beginning Spring 2009.

The following is from a press release: With state-of-the-art stagecraft, acrobatic choreography and hilarious, toe-tapping music, the Creature will be brought to life in a story based on the original screenplay, updated to emphasize the element of romance and just a bit of comic relief. Original new music and dazzling production numbers will keep the attraction contemporary and lively.

Audiences will be immersed in the ominous environment of the deepest Amazon, enveloped by the exotic sounds and scents of the jungle. And from the production's first moments, they'll be thrust into an unexpectedly outrageous, strangely romantic, frequently melodic and often hilarious adventure as a monster classic is re-imagined for the 21st Century.

"Creature from the Black Lagoon - The Musical" will be staged as an attraction within the Universal Studios Hollywood theme park. Admission will be included in the price of theme park tickets and annual passes.


Universal is also in development on a Creature from the Black Lagoon remake with director Breck Eisner (exclusive chat).

Somebody get me the contact numbers for who ever made this happen. They could make me a star!

BTW, who is the demo for this kind of unreal dreck? I have an idea, but as I still have career delusions, I rather not say. . ..

This sounds awesome!!! Though it should be a broadway play and not a theme park attraction.

I want to see it.

If it's 1/10 as good as little shop of horrors, I'll love it.

This is completely out of left field! Didn't see this coming! Being a hardcore fan, i've always envisioned a really cool/ scary adventure attraction similar to Disneys' Jungle Cruise ride with an exciting Gill-Man encounter etc. Never even crossed my mind as a musical?!! At least, i guess, they're doing SOMETHING about this classic monster and not choosing one of the others for the millionth time! Can't wait for the remake. I hope they take it seriously and make it really frightening in contrast. I'd still see this show though.

Oh, thank goodness. For a second I thought the movie was going to be a musical.
