Welcome! The purpose of this thread is to talk about all things related to the wonderful world of musical theatre. Each week I will post a thread with a topic/question for everyone to respond to. This is also a great place to mention any new musicals you’ve discovered and/or general recommendations for other musical fans. Heard/seen any good shows lately? Have any theatre news to share? Tell us about it!
A couple of weeks ago we discussed the best (and worst) stage-to-film musicals. So, it only makes sense to discuss film-to-stage musicals too. I don’t have anything major that I want to highlight this week, and so I’m going to let you all take the lead on the discussion. What stage musicals (based on movies) do you think have been particularly successful? Which ones do you think haven’t been successful? I’m sure you’ve all heard about the Frozen musical that is on Broadway now–what do you all think of that? I don’t really have any strong feelings about the movie itself, so I can’t say much about whether or not I think it is well-suited for the stage, but I thought some of you might have opinions on it.
As a kind of related question this week: what movies do you think would make good stage musicals?
