    Too funny. I thought I was going to be the lead, but I wasn’t insurable.

    Is this real or pulling an April Fool’s on the readership?

    I do theater in my “real life”, outside of insurance, and of course knew immediately it was the annual April Fools Day story from IJ – I loved it!

    And by the way, IJ, I think this could work! Let’s talk…

    The inside scope is that this show is not going to be a Phamtom “property” but is going to be another Broadway big bucks “casualty”!

    Dean Winters is the Mayhem guy, not Don Summers. No joke!

    I have a coworker who likes to sing and I am constantly telling her that insurance IS NOT a musical. I printed this article and she was ecstatic when she read the headline. Loved it even after she got the joke. Thanks for the softball. You hit it out of the park.

    Insurance musicals have been done. Here’s the program for one performed in Colorado Springs in 1990.

    That was one of the best April Fool’s jokes I ever saw! I sent to all my insurance friends for a good laugh. Who says insurance isn’t fun!

    although this may be an April Fools day trick, the story line mimics the situation we experienced in Lawrence MA. Over 350 people were arrested for auto insurance fraud. Lawyers went to jail, chiropractors went to jail… runners went to jail… insurance agents went to jail…even the insureds went to jail. Not one was our client! Greed and corruption can be found in our industry and it would make a great play!

    It may have started as an April Fool’s joke…but why not have a real production on Boardway since it happens every day on Main Street?
