Dumbo, The Musical, Heading To Broadway!

| Filed under: Broadway BabiesDisney

Between Tarzan, The Little Mermaid, Mary Poppins and The Lion King, Disney knows how to rake in the $$$$$! And they have another idea - Dumbo!

Apparently, the 1941 animated classic Dumbo is being adapted for the stage, but we'd argue that the show is far too sad!

It's rumored that Stephen Daldry, who won the Tony last year for Billy Elliot, was in talks to direct and passed.

Guess no one wants to be responsible for effing up Dumbo!

Let's just hope they get rid of those crows! Yikes!

    Is Lady GaGa going to be playing the role of Dumbo?

    Actually, Tarzan & Little Mermaid were FLOPS! Disney lost their shirts on them! They hired the worst director for Mermaid. It was an embarrassment!

    Disney also had Beauty and the Beast on Broadway, which was successful. It was my first Broadway musical I saw as a kid. Lion King is good because it is artistically beautiful and has an amazing storyline (based on Hamlet). The Little Mermaid was awful. They didn't utilize the whole stage space most of the time and most of the new songs were forgettable.

    I wonder if they will take a Barnum-isque approach to Dumbo.

    Awww, c'mon Perez, that's good old-fashioned family racism. Wonder if they'll do the whole "drunk baby elephant" scene with all the freakish pink elephants on parade in little Dumbo's 'trip'.
