Regarding "Monkeying Around With Sequel Ideas," Aug. 7: The "Planet of the Apes" sequels won't end yet. After that there may be Broadway musicals.
In "The Apes and I," a schoolteacher from England travels by ship to Southeast Asia and is shipwrecked on an uncharted island ruled by orangutans. She whistles a happy tune while the king of the apes orders her to teach his many offspring. "Apes," Andrew Lloyd Webber's next musical, is about the chimps' annual ball, where one chimp is chosen to be reborn. A fallen female chimp sings sad songs before climbing a banana tree to heaven.
