I’m rolling my eyes over Rocky: The Musical as much as the next guy, but A League of Their Own should definitely be a musical. “There’s No Crying (In Baseball)” would be a killer act-one closing number. (Also, here’s my first feature piece for Flavorwire.)
Tyler put a great thing out in the universe with a call for a “League of Their Own” musical. Of course, I just spent the last 20 minutes coming up with the songbook. MOVE OVER, JULIA HOUSTON.
“Lay Off the High Ones”
“When You’re Dottie’s Kid Sister”
“Is That General Omar Bradley? (Marla’s Song)”
“You’re a Peach!”
“Gracefully and Grandly”
“(I Don’t Got Players) I Got Girls”
“I Singin’ to Nelson (Ain’t I Baby?)”
“When the Boys Come Home”
“He Ain’t Closin’ Me Down (Hey Mr. Chocolate Man)”
“There’s No Crying in Baseball”
“Dirt in the Skirt”
“Members of the All-American League”
“Who Do You Gotta Be So Good?”
“The Ballad of Betty Spaghetti”
“The Hard Is What Makes It Great”
“Dirt in the Skirt (reprise)”
“You’re Gonna Lose (A Stillwell Angel Tap Dance)”
“A Play at the Plate”
“Lay Off the High Ones (reprise)”
“Members of the All-American League (reprise)”/”Finale (A League of Our Own)”
My life will be incomplete until this is a real thing.
Why does this not exist? Why can’t I have tickets NOW? (I’ll settle for a nice out of town tryout at the Kennedy Center if I can’t have Broadway… for traveling purposes…)

I own this! This is mine. This was done by Kevin Wada, FOR me, thanks to my amazing boyfriend who is a genius (and big opera fanatic). It’s our interests, together, in a beautiful piece!
It is unfortunate you don’t want to be adorable, because achievement unlocked.
This never fails to make me smile :-)
IT’S FINALLY DONE.
There’s a few glitches that are too late to fix though, but hopefully you guys enjoy it.
I’ll gif out a few scenarios later :)

beautiful and so sad
I owe Marilyn Monroe a real debt. It was because of her that I played the Mocambo, a very popular nightclub in the 50’s. She personally called the owner of the Mocambo, and told him she wanted me booked immediately, and if he would do it, she would take a front table every night. She told him and it was true, due to Marilyn’s superstar status that the press would go wild. The owner said yes, and Marilyn was there, front table, every night, The press went overboard. After that, I never had to play a small jazz club again. She was an unusual woman - a little ahead of her times. And she didn’t know it. -Ella Fitzgerald
