Enron - The Musical.

Enron - The Musical is coming to Houston:

A celebration of Enron's untimely investment in Nigerian waterways inspires There's No Business Like Barge Business and the litigation arising from the company's spectacular ruin is depicted in Get Me to the Court on Time.

The show was penned by an award-winning writer, Mark Fraser, who has lived in Houston for 32 years and saw the pain caused by Enron's shoddy finances, which left 21,000 people jobless.

Mr Fraser told the Guardian that there was a serious point to the production: "While we're making fun of what happened, it's also in part a social satire about what greed can do."

Heh, funny, that's actually (at least) the second musical to be birthed of the whole Enron debacle - a few weeks after getting laid off when dear ol' Andersen went under, my colleagues and I attended an entertaining play called "Damn Anderson" (the title song of which was sung to the tune 'Man on the Run') out in Chicago ... Who knew gross corporate corruption and ineptitude could be so culturally inspirational? =P
