CHiPS the Musical – Is this Necessary?

CHIPS

My cousin Bill brought this to my attention.  The Falcon Theatre in Burbank, California is staging (through July 25 – hurry to see it!) CHiPS the Musical, based on the NBC television show CHiPs, which aired in the late 70s and early 80s. 

The show, of course, was incredibly corny, even in its time.  That there is any fodder for a musical in the original material is beyond my ability to believe.
