Film after film has been made into a Broadway musical, from Mean Girls to Legally Blonde. But who would have thought you could make a musical from Sully?
For a new segment dubbed “Fraudway,” Jimmy Kimmel made up a musical version of the 2016 film starring Tom Hanks, inspired by the emergency landing made by U.S. Airways Flight 1549 in New York’s Hudson River, after it struck a flock of geese.
Kimmel’s team asked folks passing through Times Square in New York to review the fake musical, dubbed Hudson, We Have a Problem, with pretty hilarious results.
But not to make liars out of their participants, Kimmel then presented an actual number from his Sully-inspired musical on Tuesday night’s show, performed at the Howard Gilman Opera House of the Brooklyn Academy of Music.
And Capt. Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger himself? Played by none other than Tony Award winner Matthew Broderick.
Gotta love those dancing geese — until they meet their sticky end.
