"Ultimately, I do want to write an opera based around the Prince Poppycock character and his trials and tribulations," Quale said last week after securing his spot on the finale. "I would love to stage it as a full-on Ziegfeld Follies, Broadway extravaganza ... then one day, turn it into a movie."
If the Prince doesn't become reality-TV royalty, Quale said he still has grand plans for Poppycock: He wants to unleash a saga similar to John Cameron Mitchell's 2001 rock opera, "Hedwig and the Angry Inch."
