Like most of the Broadway community, I was pretty hyped¬†up about NBC’s Jesus Christ Superstar this week. And it was good! I’m hoping they film all musicals as concerts from here on out. I really enjoyed it (and I’ve never seen JCS before – what?). There are so many musicals I’d like to see them put on as live TV specials, that I think they could do something really special with. Here are just a few:

Game of tHROnes

Here me out! I think Game of Thrones would be an amazing musical (I might be going through Game of Thrones withdrawal).

It’s been a struggle, but this last week, I have been forcing myself to write. And I need to keep reminding myself why.

I’m a teacher. As such, I like to read what my students read, and so I read a lot of Young Adult books (also, let’s be honest, YA books are awesome). I’m also a Broadway enthusiast, which you probably realize if you read this blog or know me at all. Today, I am combining those two and making a list of the YA books I’d most like to see turned into Broadway musicals.

So I’m busy watching Roman Holiday right now, which, if you didn’t know, is currently in the works as a Broadway musical. Brief Encounter, Sunset Boulevard, and many other Hollywood classics have found their way onto the Broadway stage. So it got me thinking. What old Hollywood films would I like to see as Broadway musicals? Here are just a few…
