The Octomom Musical
Written by: Alyssa Marcus
Another reason for her to be in the media.
It’s safe to say that at this point, most people want Nadya Suleman, aka Octomom, to just go away. Unfortunately, this won’t be happening anytime soon. Cabaret Voltaire in Los Angeles is currently casting the role of Suleman for “Octomom the Musical,” according to Entertainment Weekly.
Cabaret Voltaire producer Chris Voltaire told EW that the show will be “a fast-paced musical comedy
about the unprecedented times America is in – with Octo as the main symbol, since she is the icon du jour… there will definitely be sing-along’s.”
In terms of the actress that Voltaire is looking for to fill the position, he wants someone who “is not coming in and pre-judging Octo… She’s trying to help the country in the only ways she knows how. She’s an au naturel stimulus package!”
MSNBC reported that auditions are being held at Bang Comedy Studio on Tuesday. The show will run for ten weeks starting June 19.
While we can't tell you exactly who's coming in we can say that plenty of Broadway talent will be giving it their all to be considered.
