“America’s war on drugs has failed. Baltimore has been torn apart by drug related violence. And now the violence is spreading… to the Players Theatre!” Funny or Die has done it again as they present The Wire: The Musical , a well-executed spoof that will make your ribs touch — with laughter! Getting together some of the actual stars from the HBO show (look out for Michael Kenneth Williams as a decidedly less intimidating Omar) and some “fresh faces” (Faizon Love as Stringer Bell!), this parody contains all kinds of spot-on hilarity that dedicated viewers of the series will appreciate, especially the musical numbers (“Chess is a metaphor for the drug game…”). Peep it….
