Being Concerned About Things that Have Already Happened

Dave Kellett, the cartoonist who does the webcomic Sheldon, apparently has never heard of the jukebox musical, since his first two strips this week express surprise and amazement at Mamma Mia!

I find his "what if this goes on!" take amusing, especially since there have been piles of them coming and going on Broadway for the past decade -- it looks like Jersey Boys is the only other one currently running , but there have been musicals with songs by Bob Dylan, The Beach Boys, Billy Joel, Elvis, Johnny Cash, and even Kurt Weil.

It's a bit late to even consider closing that particular barn door...
