On May 2, 2009, some friends of ours put on Jurassic Park: The Musical in their backyard. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to make it, but from everything we heard, it was a total blast. And having just watched the above clip, which is from the musical’s beginning, I don’t doubt it one bit.

More Jurassic Park: The Musical clips will be posted in the coming weeks and a DVD of the musical as well as a ​“behind the scenes” documentary (trailer) will be released this spring.
