Out of Town Styx Frontman Dennis DeYoung Creates A(nother) Rock n’ Roll Hunchback

That’s right: Ten years after Seattle’s legendarily horrible Hunchback tried to cast Victor Hugo’s classic as a rock n’ roll musical, Styx frontman Dennis DeYoung is set to open his own “exciting musical version” of The Hunchback of Notre Dame at Chicago’s Bailiwick Repertory Theatre.
Of course this isn’t DeYoung’s first theatrical experimentóhe was the driving force behind Styx’s high-tech, exposition-heavy Kilroy Was Here live show, each of which began with this amazing 9-minute intro film:
“You can’t stop the music, you bastards!”
“I’m Jonathan Chance!”
“Oh, my balls!”
Good luck to everyone everywhere.
