A musical based on Martin Shkreli is being made in New York and is currently seeking funding via IndieGoGo. The controversial pharmaceutical CEO who bought Wu-Tang Clan’s one of a kind Once Upon A Time In Shaolin album for $2 million has steadily been in the headlines for over a year, initially for his decision to drastically raise the price of AIDS drug Daraprim.

The musical, titled Martin Shkreli's Game: How Bill Murray Joined the Wu-Tang Clan, tells the story of Bill Murray teaming up with Wu-Tang to steal back the album from Shkreli, a rumoured (but unfortunately false) clause in the contract of him purchasing the record. As the Indiegogo listing states: "Any member of the Wu-Tang Clan and/or actor Bill Murray may legally plan and attempt to execute one heist or caper to steal back Once Upon a Time in Shaolin."

It is described as being a "musical caper comedy… based on some crazy true events" and is set to debut this July at the Midtown International Theater Festival in New York. Auditions are currently being held, for more info head here.
