A TLC Musical Might Be Coming to Broadway

Recently, a friend recounted the harrowing tale of a karaoke bar that had edited out the rap portion of “Waterfalls,” which is clearly an indicator of a sick society in desperate need of a musical to remind it of the satin pajama glory of TLC’s heyday.


And in a recent interview with Cheddar, T-Boz and Chilli gave reason to believe that we may just get that musical yet:

“We’re also working on the TLC musical and TLC on Broadway,” she said. “We’re going to create new music for those projects as well.”

Though TLC was already the subject of a VH1 biopic and the best episode of Behind the Music ever made, Chilli says we still don’t know the half of it:

“We didn’t tell everything. We have so many stories to tell. We didn’t tell it all in our biopic we did with VH1. A lot of good stuff. It’s gonna be very emotional but a good ride.”

Please, tell us everything. I’d settle for a stage reenactment of their Behind the Music episode set to a continuous, looping live performance of “What About Your Friends.”


Probably Redundant Comment

I might be remembering wrong, but I think the rap section was also cut out for the generic “listen at work” radio stations.

I’ve only been to about a dozen karaoke type events, but it seems like the only rap song that ever gets chosen is “Baby got back”... usually picked by a group of 3-5 younger white women who perform with unrestrained gusto.
