NEW YORK (AP) - Toga, toga!
Universal Pictures Stage Productions said Monday that it's developing a stage musical based on its classic college comedy "National Lampoon's Animal House."
"Animal House: The Musical" will feature an original score by the band Barenaked Ladies, with direction and choreography by Tony Award winner Casey Nicholaw, who also directed "The Book of Mormon" and "The Drowsy Chaperone."
Michael Mitnick will write the libretto for the stage production.
The 1978 film's cast included John Belushi, Tom Hulce, Bruce McGill, Tim Matheson, Stephen Furst and Karen Allen. It explored how one frat house, Delta Tau Chi, made sloth and debauchery look cool.
