Monday evening reading - "It's Karate, Kid! The Musical" reviewed

Bonzai Daniel-san! By The Intern (ESPN Page 2)

Bill Simmons' nameless intern and fellow Daniel Larusso obsessor took the ol' Chinatown bus and caught the musical adaptation of Karate Kid in the Lower East Side.
The most -- and if you've seen the web site, this won't be a shock -- was this was not a straight adaptation of the movie, and I mean "straight" literally. It's as if Travis Kramer, who wrote the show when he was at Fordham, flipped a coin to determine sexual preferences, and only Ali and Mrs. Larusso came up heads. Like Daniel said, "Hey, it's the '80s." Do whatever you want to do.
