Big and Bad

I'd like to write a musical for my kids at school. Something short. Something that boys and girls would both like to be a part of.

So here's what I'm thinking.

Big and Bad. The musical. The story of a big bad wolf who looks at all his big bad wolf ancestors and decides that he wants to live differently to them. Kind of like the Twilight vampires who go vegetarian. Or the shark from Finding Nemo who declares that fish are friends, not food.

What do you think?


  1. I think it is a brilliant idea.

  2. It sounds interesting. But if he's deciding he in fact doesn't want to be "big and bad" like his ancestors, won't you need a different title?

  3. Bill Willingham explores a similar concept with Bigby Wolf (along with lots of other fairy tale characters) in Fables.
