    Students from Australia's University of Sydney are putting on a play about the life of Kanye West. The play is titled Kanye: The Musical. Really? Really!

    The production's official Facebook page posted a synopsis of the musical, which reads as follows: "This is a story of a struggle against the man to become the man. It's about a guy who took a shot at the throne and didn't miss. This is the tale of Kanye."

    Student Phillip Roser and friend Damien Higginbotham co-wrote original songs for the musical that will be delivered in "the style of Kanye." So the songs will be performed as confident, cocksure rapping?

    The play is set to run from Sept. 5 through 7 at the university's Cellar Theatre during its annual Verge festival.

    What other pop star should have a play about his or her life? Would you see Kanye: The Musical if you lived Down Under?
