Which Movie Or TV Show Should Be Made Into A Broadway Musical?

In my opinion, EVERYTHING should be a musical. Including life.

Hi, I'm Hannah, and I love musicals more than anything!! I especially love musicals that started out as movies, like Heathers, Mean Girls, Legally Blonde, Carrie, and Moulin Rouge!

MTV

If you want to watch Legally Blonde, btw, MTV once aired a recording of the show and you can find it online!

But there are SO MANY movies and TV shows out there just WAITING to be turned into musicals. Can you imagine an Avengers musical??

Marvel

There would 100% be a HUGE group number to end Act I. And an EPIC villain song from Loki. Also, some kind of "The Confrontation" style song between Steve and Tony. I'm getting chills just thinking about it.

Or what about adapting another Disney movie into a musical, like Tangled?

Disney

Tangled is probably my favorite movie of all time, but the one area it's lacking in are the songs. They're cute, but not amazing! Broadway adaptations of Disney movies ALWAYS add a ton of songs, so this could be an amazing opportunity to remedy that.

Or even a teen drama like Riverdale!

The CW

The show is already basically a musical! Besides, they did Carrie, Heathers, and Hedwig and the Angry Itch – clearly the writers are musical fans. Make it happen, guys!!

Or maybe another teen movie, like The Breakfast Club!

Universal Pictures

There's already so much proven success with teen movies and Broadway shows!! I'm seeing an epic opening number about cliques. Also, can you imagine a "Don't You Forget About Me" cover?
