Based on a mostly true story.
One of the more insane stories in recent memory is how the Wu Tang Clan put up a single copy of their new album for auction and it was bought, at great expense, by Martin Shrkeli, one of the most hated people on the Internet. A clause of this sale, which turned out to be a hoax, includes provisions for a single attempt of the Wu Tang Clan and Bill Murray to steal the album back.
As that story is just too captivating to be left untrue, musical team Lauren Gundrum and Joel Esher have decided to bring this whole story to life in ‘a musical’ with all of its true and untrue parts. Apparently, Shkreli has even offered to play himself.
One of the funniest parts of this whole endeavor is that Gundrum and Esher’ indiegogo campaign to raise funds for this project includes a $2 million reward that allows the musical to be shut down for good a la Shkreli’s $2 million buy of the Wu Tang Clan’s singular album.
