The life of Kanye West, the self-professed"voice of this generation, of this decade," is now being adapted into a musical.
"Kanye: The Musical" will be coming to the stage via a two-man musical by University of Sydney student Phillip Roser and Damien Higginbotham.The students describe the show as:
Draw[ing] from actual event[s] in his life but it is not a biographical rendition of Kanye’s life. This is a comedy, it won’t let the truth get in the way and will be a lot of fun.
It's unclear which of West's famous shenanigans will make it into the show, but from his assertion that "George Bush doesn't care about black people" to his interruption of Taylor Swift's acceptance speech at the 2009 VMAs, he's certainly done his best to lead a theatrical life.
Roser told the Los Angeles Times that "I'm a big Kanye fan. I thought that a musical in his honour would be a lot of fun to put on. I really just meant the show to be something fun for my friends to see and I'm pretty excited by all the attention it's been getting."
All of the songs in the musical will be written in the style of Kanye and will feature Rosen as Kanye and Higginbotham as Kanye's mother, the late Donda West, Marc Jacobs and a character called "Spooky Dracula."
The show itself will show at the university's Cellar Theater from September 5th through 7th.
