    Cunanan musical to be developed at La Jolla Playhouse

    By: PAM KRAGEN - Staff Writer

    A musical based on the life of San Diego serial killer Andrew Cunanan ---- whose far-flung victims include fashion designer Gianni Versace ---- will be developed this year at the La Jolla Playhouse through a $35,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Playhouse announced last week.

    The musical, titled "Disposable," will be developed by three Playhouse associates ---- playwright Jessica Hagedorn (whose "Dogeaters" went from the Playhouse to off-Broadway a few years ago), composer Mark Bennett (creator of the score for the Playhouse's "Eden Lane" last year) and director Michael Greif (who ran the Playhouse as artistic director from 1994 to 1999).

    Playhouse spokeswoman Jessica Padilla called the musical a "long-term project in the very early stages of development." While "Disposable" will have its world premiere at the Playhouse, Padilla said she did not know when it would take place.


    Cunanan grew up in La Jolla, was a regular in San Diego's gay party scene in the 1990s and had a reputation as a gay prostitute before he embarked on a cross-country odyssey of serial killings in 1997. Before he shot himself to death in a Miami-area houseboat, Cunanan was suspected of killing five people (most of them gay men) in Illinois, Minnesota and Florida. His last victim, Versace, was shot to death on the front steps of his Miami mansion.

    Oh what are you belly aching for? All that money could do is provide food, shelter and medical treatment for someone anyway.

    :thup:
    speculative elite MAYBE theatre piece aptly named "disposable" that probably glorifies a serial killer

    OR

    helping people who could actually use a hand up?

    This really is a question straight out of anterevolutionary France.
