The Clockwork Waltz

Great news. Just saw this on the Dresden Dolls YahooGroup, thanks to Jordan, who gave the heads up. There’s a Broadway musical based on The Dresden Dolls songs in the works.

“The Clockwork Waltz” is an original concept and story, based on and including 13 songs written by The Dresden Dolls. The story is that of a school-aged girl named Amanda, living with her overworked single mother, Jill. At first, Amanda seems like a typical girl with typical problems… but a freak accident at her doctor’s office starts to turn her life upside-down, inside-out, and sideways. The show is reported to be in final pre-production stages and is set to launch in August 2006. Exact dates or locations have not yet been announced.

I’m betting at least Missed Me will be on it. If you want a taste of what they’re like, there’s a download page on their beautiful site.



missed me missed me now you’ve got to kiss me
if you kiss me mister you must think im pretty
if you think so mister you must want to fuck me
if you fuck me mister it must mean you love me
if you love me mister you would never leave me
it’s as simple as can be!


Update: Slipped my mind to post the Wikipedia link here too. Thanks, morgan!

    Are you kidding? 😀 The Dresden Dolls are already quite popular in the European goth scene as well – and have made it on some more mainstream-ish papers, at least where I live (Spain). Besides, the internet works wonders 😉
