What movie would be the most horrifying one to adapt to a stage musical?

"Ugh. If all that is required, it seems, to turn a film into a stage musical is a little bit of music in the original, then can it be long before we’re faced with the all-singing, all-dancing Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, in which the whole production is like the parade bit when Ferris jumps up on the float? I can almost see the choreography in the museum segment already, as the actors ape the poses in the famous paintings --projected in the air above them, naturally -- as they dance.

Double ugh.

But that’s nothing to dread next to the spectre of, say, Schindler’s List: The Musical -- no one will be admitted during John Barrowman’s haunting rendition of “I Could Have Done More (for Them)” -- or Saving Private Ryan with book and lyrics by Elton John.

    This week has been pretty good as far as holiday beginnings go. My mom was feeling a little under the weather, so I cancelled plans to go to…


    Hoping to get on the MUX tonight to RP.
