If you're surprised, then you haven't seen the roster on Broadway these days. It's all about revivals and remakes!
Sydney's Lyric Theatre is preparing itself for a musical adaptation of the 1982 film An Officer and a Gentleman. Adapted by original Academy Award-nominated screenwriter Douglas Day Stewart, the show will make its official debut on May 24, 2012 and is being directed by Australian director Simon Phillips. No word yet about casting.
It's an interesting choice. A movie known for its soundtrack, for sure, but we never thought of it as a musical. It's interesting.
Any other movies U think would make good musicals?
