Those are for thin snooty old white women with trust funds and door men who live in a sheltered walled-off bubble, who can afford to explore the musical side of cats and HIV. Plus, there's nothing I know of that has been made better in musical form. I'm mainly basing this assumption off of my experience with the Simpsons, and how bad I assume Shrek the Musical is and Spider-Man the Musical will be. Toxic Avenger the Musical has proved me wrong. It was good.
