Sleepless in Seattle to Become Broadway Musical


"Horses, horses, horses, horses. . . ."

I hope one of the songs in the Sleepless in Seattle Broadway musical begins like that, patterned after Meg Ryan's little moment singing along to the holiday tune in her car. According to Variety, the script for Sleepless in Seattle — The Musical is about half finished, and about 18 songs have been written. The article notes, "Sticking to plot of the Sleepless pic, the new tuner follows a cross-country romance arranged by a young boy for his widowed father. Storyline will remain set in the early 1990s."

I'm glad to hear that, since I think part of the movie's greatness is that it's so quintessentially '90s — back before Internet dating made it not so unusual at all to find love 3,000 miles away (actually, before the Internet made it much easier to find people in general) and before acronyms (like Jessica's MFEO = Made For Each Other) were commonly used as text message communication. I'm not going to lie, I'll probably see this production, just to find out how on earth they do it.

What do you think? And what are some suggestions for musical numbers to include in the stage musical? Would you want to see it?
