The Year of the Horse
I am 100% on board for any and all rock operas (particularly ones that feature nearly every local folk-rock person you've ever heard of), but if this turns out to be a show about a depressed ex-TV star man-horse that's billed as a comedy but doesn't actually have any jokes I'm gonna go Ron Artest on Chris Bousquet.
