Little Miss Sunshine: The Musical??

How the eff is this going to work?? Half of the movie took place in a car!

The Academy Award nominated indie hit Little Miss Sunshine is apparently getting the musical theater treatment, and will be premiering on stage at the La Jolla playhouse next February!

William Finn and James Lapine will reportedly be collaborating on the stage version.

We don't know…there's a lot of dark humor that might work for the theater, but the some of the best moments of the movie are in the nuances - and there's no way those are going to translate!

Not to mention the VW! How stoopid is the show going to be if they're stuck in the car for the majority of the time?

What do U think?? Will Little Miss Sunshine work on stage??

    It'll work.



  5. 5

    BMW? What movie were you watching (whoever you are)?



  6. 6

    The BMW???? You mean the VW, you buck putz.

    I HATED that movie. I couldn't for the life of me figure out why people liked that piece of crap. I'm sure my opinion of a musical version wouldn't be a heck of a lot better.

    Damn, I read about this on Entertainment Weekly 5 hours ago–hell, you seem to rip off their headlines a lot.

    Perez, have you ever been to stage shows?? If they can make Cats (set in a small alley almost 100% of the show) then Im sure they can set a show in a VW for about half the show. Idiot.

    Such a great movie!



  11. 11

    i don't think it'll work too well. i think Little Miss Sunshine should stick to being just a movie and that musicals should find original ideas and come up with something new instead of ripping off movies



  12. 12

    i didn't even like the movie



  13. 13

    I can tell you this: I can't see the song "Grandpa's Dead" live on stage.

    The La Jolla Playhouse puts on great musicals! I've seen several productions and have not been disappointed! I know they will make Little Miss Sunshine work!

    I would love to see Toni Collette come back to Broadway again!



  16. 16

    that just made my night.
    I would definitely go see it.
    SUCH an amazing movie!

    Well, Perez, Priscilla Queen of the Dessert took place on a bus, but the musical is f'ing amazing! So I think that would be the least for their problems! Lol



  18. 18

    I would say no, but James Lapine and William Finn are genuises, and whatever they do will be amazing.



  19. 19

    Loved this movie, I think they can do good things on stage.



  20. 20

    If anyone can make it work, it's Bill Finn and James Lapine, they're a brilliant team



  21. 21

    This is a BRILLIANT idea. Perez, your not thinking out of the box here…the brilliant minds of the theater can manifest this into a really beautiful dark humor stage performance. I think they can find ways of removing the vehicle and placing the cast in a different setting. mm i think this could be good
