Tom Toles is writing a musical comedy

Washington Post editorial cartoonist Tom Toles is writing a musical comedy.

From the Washington City Paper:

So, even with two bands, you decided to write a musical? Why?

The Lethal Bark songs just cried out to be a musical. They are storytelling songs, and a lot of them are about what an impressive variety of jerks that guys can be. It became a show idea when I realized how the story should be told from a woman?s point of view.

What’s the basic plot?

The plot follows a woman who gets caught in a vortex of bad sequential dating of guys who don?t, won?t, can?t work out as relationships, while she?s simultaneously trying to figure out some other basic issues in her life. It?s a lot of goodbyes. The original title of the play was Kiss Your Asshole Goodbye. The plot leads up to a decision the woman?named Lurid, by the way?needs to make.

Musical is called Catapult Love and is co-authored by Katie Goodman and Soren Kisiel.
