Toyota gets satirized in Minneapolis-based musical called "Toyota: The Runaway Musical Hit!"
If you’re lucky to be somewhere in Minneapolis right now - who thought we’d actually write that and mean it - then we highly suggest you find a way to catch this new musical that’s becoming a hot ticket in town. Created by a comedy theater and improv school called ’Brave New Workshop’, the musical is all about Toyota. That, and all of it’s unintended acceleration woes. We get the tongue-in-cheekness of it all and it actually sounds like something we’d go and watch on a Friday night.
Titled as "Toyota: The Runaway Musical Hit!", the creators have promised anyone watching that they’re going to have a rollicking good time with the musical - or as they loosely said. "prepare yourself for an unstoppable musical ride".
These guys worked so far to the end with this they even managed to use - without permission, we heard - R.E.O. Speedwagon’s hit song "Can’t Fight This Feeling" and made it into their own. Don’t believe us? Check out the lyrics.
"And I can’t stop this Prius anymore.
I forgotten what I started stopping for.
I got the brake pressed clear down to the floor.
[Who just came through the back door?]
Baby I can’t stop this Prius anymore."
The show runs until August 14 so you have loads of time to make the trip to the Twin Cities to catch this "runaway musical."
