Annie Hall: The Musical?

Don't worry, it's only a play about turning Woody Allen's Academy Award winning Best Picture Annie Hall into a stage musical. The Rise and Fall of Annie Hall, a new comedy starring Tony Award winner Dan Fogler (The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee), opens tonight in (appropriately enough) New York City.

In more unlikely screen-to-stage transfers, the guys who brought us Silence! Silence of the Lambs: The Musical are now turning their satirical gaze on the B-movie classic They Saved Hitler's Brain.

Meanwhile, another cheesy sci-fi fave-turned-tuner, The Toxic Avenger, is currently playing (appropriately enough) in New Jersey; rumor has it that it may move Off-Broadway in the near future.
