On the anniversary of John Belushi’s death, many fans are flying their Delta House flag at half staff. But now there’s a sunnier reason to throw on your College tee: an “Animal House: The Musical” is on the way.

Universal Stage Division announced that there’s a “National Lampoon’s Animal House” musical in the works. And if that’s not enough to make you spit chewed-up hard-boiled eggs at everyone, the musical’s score will be penned by the tongue-twisty fellas of the Barenaked Ladies. (Kind of amazing, right?)

While there’s no word on who will play Belushi’s character, the booze-filled party animal known as John “Bluto” Blutarsky, the seminal debauchery fest is bringing about some top notch theater folk, with a libretto from Michael Mitnick (“Sex Lives of Our Parents”), and “The Book of Mormon’s” Casey Nicholaw as the director/choreographer.
