Post The Musical Theatre Haiku Game
How it works: Create a haiku describing or otherwise referring to a musical. The person who figures out which musical the haiku is about will get the next shot. The haiku consists, of course, of three lines: five syllables, seven syllables and five syllables.

Woman from the sun
Beautiful not arrogant
Kills beyond our sight

Kiss of the Spider Woman

Very clever idea, BTW. Here's mine:

He who watches me
Kills me point by point as he
Makes me immortal

Ah, but it isn't Kiss of the Spider Woman.... I'll have a crack at yours though:

Lestat? If my guess is correct, my original one is back up for grabs...

No, sorry, not Lestat...

Darn it! I was sure I had yours right because Aurora is the goddess of the dawn in Roman mythology. And the rest of it basically fits too.

So I guess mine is still open too...

This is a cool idea!

At first I thought of Next to Normal before I saw "point by point".

Is Rainbow Jude's haiku for Carrie? Does Carrie kill people? I've never actually seen it... hmmm...

That was a great haiku for Sunday in the Park with George!

Mine does not refer to Miss Saigon or Carrie. Here's a clue: the musical was written in the last 10 years....

Woman from the sun
Beautiful not arrogant
Kills beyond our sight


More guesses?

Haikus are easy
But sometimes they don't make sense.
