The daily business of organised crime in the city of Baltimore, the subject of HBO series 'The Wire', is now taken to the theatre, in the form of a musical. To see Bubbles tap dancing while high on crack, detective Shakima Greggs singing the words from criminal files, or D’Angelo Barksdale explaining the war on drugs in the city with beautiful, poetic metaphors is now real, thanks to this video preview. However, this video is the only thing you're going to see from “The Wire: The Musical”, as it's all a big joke by Funny Or Die. Omar Little in the role of Old Dirty Bastard, yes. Dancing on Broadway, er, we think not.
