James Corden, Billy Eichner, and Anna Kendrick Present Life: The Totally Insane Musical

The circle of life can be depicted in many odd and unexpected ways, like a casual 14-song musical acted out with extreme dedication and care by the holy trinity of James Corden, Billy Eichner, and Anna Kendrick. In a bid to start a new Broadway phenomenon (and because theater kids will be theater kids), the trio put together an elaborate walk through the stages of life on the Late Late Show set to classic pop songs. With props! Specifically, this is a speed-read story of Anna Kendrick’s alternate life, from her tragedy-stricken birth (poor Eichner’s wife), to the loss of her virginity to bad-boy Corden, to her evolution into a career woman with a baby strapped to her at all times. Love doesn’t last forever, Anna! Ah, life. Cross your fingers it doesn’t come at you as dizzyingly fast as this musical.
