Starring Dan Kelly as Robert Nozick!

Are you ready for this? A Theory of Justice, the Musical. No, really:

In order to draw inspiration for his magnum opus, John Rawls travels back through time to converse (in song) with a selection of political philosophers, including Plato, Locke, Rousseau and Mill. But the journey is not as smooth as he hoped: for as he pursues his love interest, the beautiful student Fairness, through history, he must escape the evil designs of his libertarian arch-nemesis, Robert Nozick, and his objectivist lover, Ayn Rand. Will he achieve his goal of defining Justice as Fairness?

I thought they already made that show. It was called Hair.

Tempting to fly over to Oxford and see it, but I think I’ll just stick with The Avengers.

7 Thoughts.

  1. Dear Greg,

    Not to give it away, but Rousseau’s big number is not called “Everywhere in Chains” – don’t know how that rumour started!
