A new musical created to honor the movies of Quentin Tarantino recently debuted. The production features some of his best movies, including: Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill. This latest news follows the leak of a script Quentin worked years on.

Given Quentin's perfectionist nature, one might surmise that the award-winning genius would object to such a spectacle. But you'd be wrong, as Wall Street Journal reports:

"Quentin Tarantino, the film director whose oeuvre inspired the spectacle, has no connection to the production but was in the audience on the show's second night, leaning into a booth with friends. He said afterward that he was embarrassed for the first few minutes of the show. By the second act he was singing along and waving his hands in the air as a cast member belted out 'Across 110th Street,' featured in the director's 1997 Jackie Brown."

If anyone deserves to have an enjoyable night out, it's Quentin. This is especially true considering a script he spent a lot of time working on managed to find its way to the internet.

Luckily, Quentin only gave the script to a select few, making it easier to track where the leak came from. According to Tarantino, there is only one person that he can fully trust:

"I gave it to one of the producers on Django Unchained, Reggie Hudlin, and he let an agent come to his house and read it. That's a betrayal, but not crippling because the agent didn't end up with the script. There is an ugly maliciousness to the rest of it. I gave it to three actors: Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern, Tim Roth. The one I know didn't do this is Tim Roth. One of the others let their agent read it, and that agent has now passed it on to everyone in Hollywood."
