“Oh, Streetcar! (The Musical) from The Simpsons: Songs in the Key of Springfield
music Alf Clausen lyrics Jeff Martin*
performance Hank Azaria, Julie Kavner, Jon Lovitz, Harry Shearer
*as far as I can surmise
It has come to my attention that this year’s Superbowl is in N’Awlins, so naturally I thought of the opening of “Oh, Streetcar!”.
Fun fact—apparently idea to musicalize A Streetcar Named Desire (as opposed to having the denizens of Springfield do a straight play) stemmed from the Tennessee Williams Estate’s refusal to grant permission to quote significant passages from the play. Original songs INSPIRED by the material, however, was deemed permissible.
