Now that I'm working with show business people here in the Big Apple, crazy stories about new shows headed for Broadway seem even weirder, especially when you know what's involved. Check out this report on The Body Ventura, a musical in development about the Governor of Minnesota and his illustrious life. It's the song titles that really get me:

The musical will explore Ventura's youthful ambitions in the song ``Take the World by Storm,'' his stint as a Navy SEAL in ''Hooyah,'' the launch of his wrestling career as Jesse The Body in ``Sign with Me.'' It will also depict his brand of politics in the tune ``Retaliate in '98.''
