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?

I hope they invite Ewan to reprise his role in the broadway version. I loved his voice in Moulin Rouge.

The Lion King is definitely very well done! And I also love Legally Blonde, lol.

The Lion King is the perfect example of how well a movie can be adapted for the stage. Others: Billy Elliot, Spamalot, and Hairspray

I can only say this - First Wives Club the musical - which didn't make it past it's out of town try out - was the biggest hot mess to ever grace a stage. I encourage all to you tube "I'm red-day for change." for a good laugh. Karen Ziemba and Barbra Walsh...why would you ever....
