Karl Marx, The Musical

Sure to be a hit with the Obamatons.
HIGH-kicking Chinese Marxists are set to bring communism's most famous tract to life - as a musical.

An all-singing, all-dancing stage version of Das Kapital is being produced in Shanghai to show how the thinking of Karl Marx is as relevant in today's economic crisis as when his book was first published in 1867, producers said yesterday.

"The entertainment and theatrical elements will help ordinary people better understand why the financial crisis is happening,'' said Zhang Jun, a Fudan University economics professor, who is an advisor on the production.
Those who don't understand after the play concludes will be sent to re-education camps and forced to listen to Senate floor speeches of Charles Schumer.
