This Musical Must be Revived on Broadway, STAT!!!

I have always been a devoted worshipper of Coco Chanel.



Being that by religious faith I am Lukumi meets Buddhist, I believe in the concept of "mounting" Get your minds out of the gutter...not that kind of mounting. In Lukumi or Regla de Ocha, mounting means that a spirit takes you over. Sometimes it's the spirit of a Loa ( or Orisha, that is a deity such as Oshun or Yemaya) or the spirit of a person or ancestor.



I like to fantasize that the spirit "mounting" me, is that of Coco Chanel, particularly when I am designing. We are intellectually and emotionally very similar people.



I keep by my bedside a protrait of Coco Chanel





and I have a big poster of Lagerfeld's sketches of Chanel through time that he did for the exhibit at the Met a few years ago. It is the first thing I see when I open my eyes in the morning.





I also own a precious Chanel necklace of a Coco Chanel doll that I was infinitely lucky to buy on auction and I am told it's extremely rare.







I love Coco Chanel.



Well turns out that there was a "Coco Chanel: The Musical" back in 1969.



Choreographed by none other that my adored choreography role model, Michael Bennett.



He passed away in the early days of AIDS. He also choreographed "A Chorus Line".



The musical starred Kate Hepburn. And I think this show should be revived IMMEDIATELY if for the costumes only. And the only person that could play her would be Salma Hayek...



No, don't even THINK of Audrey Tatou. She is annoyingly perky...



Here is video of Kate Hepburn in "Coco"
