Website Found: Anthem, the Musical

Leave a comment

The wonderful thing about randomly surfing the interwebs is that sometimes you find something so cool it’s hard to believe it exists. Case in point is this website for Anthem, the Musical.

What is it?
You know that book by Ayn Rand called Anthem? Well, apparently somebody thought it would be a good idea to turn it into a musical, and this website is all about it.

Why is it cool?
Well, what isn’t cool about it? It’s a website all about a musical version of Ayn Rand’s Anthem. It doesn’t get much cooler than that, right? Okay, so maybe you don’t know what book I’m talking about; if that is the case, then just take note that someone loved a single book enough to turn it into a musical.
The website has sample audio to listen to, which has a sort of 80s rock sound in to vocals, which is interesting, and several pages with information about the musical, including: The Story, The Characters, Creative Team, Media, and Contact pages.

If you like Ayn Rand’s work, this website could change your life (maybe, or maybe not). If you don’t know Ayn Rand’s work (I’ve never read any), then this page should be a testament to the awesomeness of literature, because only a book (the musical Wicked was also based on a book, by the way) could bring something like this to life. Or someone who really likes musicals (or both).
