May is a mad month. A month of random musings about various topics related to musical theatre. Feel free to share your thoughts on each topic in the comment box below.
Movie to Current Broadway Musical to Movie Musical
Which of the currently running Broadway musicals based on movies would you most like to see remade as a movie musical? All right, so Mary Poppins and The Lion King were both musicals to begin with, but both underwent significant changes in the journey from stage to screen. So make a pick and share the reason why you’ve chosen that particular show for the movie musical treatment in the comment box.
My choice would be Billy Elliot. I thoroughly enjoy the score by Elton John and Lee Hall, and think that Hall did a marvelous job adapting the screenplay for the book of the show.
