This world just gets sicker and sicker. "Why?" Just tell me why would you..Mr. Russell produce a musical of all things about something like this???? Why would you glorify a psychopathic killer and graverobber???? Not only that but add, and I quote, "light-hearted toned songs?" You say, "You can't forget your past, good or bad, and it's a part of Wisconsin's history", but this took place so long ago! Why do you bring this to life now?? There are families and family members that were unfortunately victims of this horrible nightmare that have been forever affected and/or gone through years and years of doing every possible thing know to man to heal mentally. And heartless sick minded people as yourself THINK this piece of history would be "delightfully entertaining!" (I'm sure for the almighty dollar as well) Wisconsin has too many other great historical memories to tell about rather than something like this!! You make residents of Wisconsin sound like a bunch of sick cannibalistic, mentally insane people! I think it takes a sick minded, cannibalistic, mentally insane individual such as yourself to produce such a debauchery as this and to find it entertaining! You are a sick piece of shit!!!!

I agree with you on this one Lori. It is sick anything to make a buck regardless of the people who will be hurt. My prayers go out to the families and friends of all who were harmed by this Evil man. What comes around goes around. This will be just like reliving all the pain again that Gein caused and I am sincerely sorry for that. I wish some people had better things to do then glorify a sick, evil, man as Gein.

Let us pray that this "Musical" losses so much money the people who did it can never again make anything like it.

This is beyond "Sick". It is a slap in the face to the family's of the victims, and everyone who cares about ending the violence against women.

The idea to produce a play about Gein is as sick as doing one about a FASCIST like Evita Peron. Ladies. And please watch your language.

What's with the s-word, Helstrom? I thought we should keep these letters clean. You Helstroms sound like maniacs yourselves.

Miss Helstrom, you should be careful what you write about someone. You might end up in court getting sued for libel and slander! There are more mature ways to make a point.

I don't think so, it's called freedom of speech.
Not worried at all :)

Sorry you feel that way, but you're missing the point of my comment "Bambi"

I hope you police every other person on topix for such "foul language!"

No Lori, it's you and Janet that have the foul mouths. You two threaten and verbally abuse anybody that disagrees with your posts. F and S bombs and wishing for violence on people doesn't help your case.
I've seen the other postings. You two are NOT pacifists.

The Gein murders have inspired many books and movies over the years (i.e. Psycho, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre).
Paul Simon wrote for a musical about a murderer. Not too long ago, Johnny Depp did Sweeny Todd.
So why are you Helstroms upset?
Animal House was going to be "Charlie Manson Goes to High School".

Certainly everyone who has commented before me don't have anything Productive to do in their lives. The whole scenario really sounds like we have just one too many jennies out there. Go find something better to do. And, yes, the language is not too good either. Happydays girls/guy.
