The Worst Musical Ever

May 17th, 2022

Welcome to Campfire Classics, a Literary Comedy Podcast!!

And welcome back Craig to Episode 99!  We're almost at a landmark!

How do we celebrate?  By reading a story that we don't really understand and planning the worst musical ever constructed!


Ken has selected the story (if that's what we're calling it) from a new author named Andrew Halliday.  His story "The Engine-Driver" is engine driver, I guess.  I'm actually not sure.  I just finished editing the episode and I don't think your hosts even know what it was.

Anyway, along Ken and Craig make some truly outlandish theatrical plans, speculate wildly over the motivations of (probably) innocent man, and once again taking up valuable podcasting time making fun of a Tom Cruise movie.

"The Engine-Driver" was published in the 1866 book Mugby Junction.
