The Theory of Justice Musical is the Nerdiest Thing You’ll See All Day

Eugene Wolters posted at Critical Theory on A Theory of Justice: The Musical.
"In order to draw inspiration for his magnum opus, John Rawls travels back through time to converse (in song) with a colourful cast of political philosophers, including Plato, Locke, Rousseau and Mill. But the journey is not as smooth as he hoped: for as he pursues his love interest, the beautiful student Fairness, through history, he must escape the evil designs of his libertarian arch-nemesis, Robert Nozick, and the objectivist seductress, Ayn Rand. Will Rawls achieve his goal of defining Justice as Fairness? The world’s first feature-length musical about political philosophy showcases a script steeped in drama, humour and romance – with a musical score that covers everything from rap battles to power ballads."
