A Night at the Bum Phillips Opera

The gang at Monk Parrots have been working on this production for so long that I think I mentioned it in a Walkthrough. Bum Phillips: All American Opera is the labor of love of some intellectual folks of diverse tastes who wanted to tell a football story in a totally different way. Kindred spirits to the Football Outsiders gang, in many ways.

I heard they let Wade Phillips conduct the orchestra, but it was such a disaster they fired him. Now, he's the woodwind coordinator for "Cats" and doing a fine job.

He recently pointed out in an interview that critics' reviews during his time as conductor were slightly more favorable than the reviews of his replacement.
