I'm waiting for the novelization of the stage version of the film

I bet "The Sound of Music" would make a good play too.

Saw Les Mis many years ago on Broadway. It was pretty good. It really made me appreciate the talent it takes to be an unknown understudy (damn right I went to the cheapie Wed matinee) on Broadway.

Y'know, if they took a few of the songs out of that movie "The Producers", I bet it'd still be funny.

When's the FPS version coming out?

i heard the makers of Total War are developing an RTS based on it

Yeah, they could put a theme park together with a bunch of stuff from that movie, too.  Like, actually build some of the palaces in that "France" country they made up.

Wait.. but... it was literally just back. Like, I saw the 2th Anniversary tour in December. It hasn't been gone at all?

Do you pronounce that as "tooth"?

If it's touring, it's -- by definition -- not "on Broadway". At least, that particular production of it isn't.

Inception and Xzibit jokes aside, they aren't making a new version -- they're just reopening the show on Broadway

The world is ready for a Vietnam War movie musical, right?

I think I would enjoy a cartoon version of The Lion King.

Fabulous.
Just farking fabulous.
Now the entire world won't SYFU about it for another ten or so years.
Jesus farking christ on a gay pride parade float.
If every stinking person who went to gush over this frufru claptrap actually sat down and read the original farking book, I might not give a flying fark. But This is what great literature has been reduced to. A bucnch of gay -assed plastic action figures in a barf bag handed out through a drive through farking window.
No wonder our nation is full of farking illiterate morans.
Just great, America.
Go where the farking money is.
Farking fabulous.

It's kind of a downer.  They should remake it as a romantic comedy with Ashton Kutcher.

I'm so Old, the first time I saw this show it was with the original Broadway Cast BEFORE it opened on Broadway (it debuted in America at the Kennedy Center in DC before going to Broadway-thanks to a ticket snafu I ended up sitting in the box next to the President's (of the US) Box-but he wasn't there that night (pretty sure it was Bush the Elder at the time)

"If I Were a Rich Minh"

and

"Cheer up Charlie"

It'd be cool if they could "land" a full size helicopter on stage

Ya know, I am surprised what with all the movies being made into musicals, Broadway has yet to try Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

/which would of course be based on the 1971 film version based on the book

I'm not a big fan of musicals.... but yeah, I'm totally with you there.  I'd even go see it.  (I've seen one musical in my life: Avenue Q)

Not surprising- the 25th anniversary production has been touring the country for a while now.  I live in Pittsburgh and went to the show about a month ago.  It was completely full, and tickets went fast.  Might as well make the money while it's hot again.

I was about to say "cool", but I've read a couple of articles about it and have yet to see one confirming that the original songs have been kept.

That's where all of the money is made -- roadshow without AEA actors. Most of the time the Broadway show is just a marketing tool to help sell the roadshow.

I always thought they should have made a novelization of The Passion of the Christ.

There is a Kung-fu musical in the works right now. Bruce Lee bio thing. Jimi Hendrix is a character. Lots of martial arts. Cool stuff like that.

Let me know when the Syfy channel makes a TV show out of it and then cancels it after they show a cliff hanger season finally.

I mean, there is already a  Willy Wonkamusical. It's shiate, but I have high hopes for Sam Mendes. I believe his will actually be called  Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, which is, of course, the correct title.
