Wouldn’t Walter White’s “I am the one who knocks” speech have been so much better if he had sung it? Okay, maybe not. But that doesn’t mean that a Breaking Bad musical is out of the question, a fact that was first proven by Breaking Bad: The Middle School Musical and has now been reaffirmed, thanks to UCBLA’s Walter White and the Amazing Blue Crystal Meth: A Breaking Bad Rock Opera.
An hour-long Breaking Bad musical inspired by Andrew Lloyd Weber’s Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Walter White and the Amazing Blue Crystal Meth takes viewers through the entire Breaking Bad journey, all the way up to the moment Hank goes for a little bathroom break and makes the biggest discovery of his career. So just to give you an idea of what the musical covers: Tuco, Hector, Jane’s death, Marie’s purple obsession, Saul, Badger, Skinny Pete, Gus, Gale, Hank’s attack by those creepy twins, Mike’s death, Skyler’s drinking, and finally, Walt’s retirement.
If only there had been a giant magnet, and maybe a fly or two, this would have been perfect (or perhaps, too long). Watch Walter White and the Amazing Blue Crystal Meth: A Breaking Bad Rock Opera below:
