Big Fish to Be Made Into Broadway Musical

Buzz In: What's Your Favorite Musical Based on a Movie?

Raise the stage curtain for another movie turned musical: Big Fish is getting the Broadway treatment. It's easy to see why the Tim Burton film would make its way to the stage, what with its fanciful scenes and larger-than-life story. Big Fish is hardly the first movie to inspire a Broadway production — in recent years, Elf, The Wedding Singer, even the documentary Grey Gardens have been adapted into musicals.


Films are an easy enough place to get inspiration, and often times it works; sometimes the show is just as good as the original. Such is the case with the last movie-turned-musical that I loved: Legally Blonde, which managed to make a cute movie an equally fun show. Now it's your turn — what's your favorite musical based on a movie?
