This is just another was to exploit her memory. As if her life weren't tawdry enough, now there will be an opera to memorialize it further? And to make light of the way she tried to bilk the Marshall family...just repugnant.

I do like bashing the dead. Now' while I am alive. No use after I am dead and in process of decomposition.

will there be actual words that we can understand, or will the actors inhale pills down their throats to sound like her, you know, for historical accuracy? I don' think I could sit through that crap. Why do we pat people on the back in this country for marrying old men who are about to die? What did she ever do to become famous but take off her clothes? There has to be a better woman to make an opera about, someone more interesting, like maybe even Loraina Bobbit.

I think this is a splendid idea ... unless it comes off as did a stage treatment I once saw based on the life of New York Madam Polly Adler. The producers tried to make it a musical, to boot. Awful, just plain AWFUL!
Needless to say, it never made it much further than the drawing board, thankfully. It was the basis for the faux-musical plot in an '80's Perry Mason TV movie called 'Musical Murder'.
