Novels/movies that we would like to see turn into plays/musicals/operas

For example, A Pure Formality written and directed by Giuseppe Tornatore would make an awesome play. And I was hoping that someday the film ‘The Breakfast Club’ would be adapted into a play.

  • I think you would want to focus on either novels OR movies. Including both might make this article a bit busy. – jzalz19 9 years ago
  • I agree with the above comment, I can imagine that it'll be fun to do both, but I would advise doing two separate articles. I'd be interested to see what you do with this and also the reasoning behind it. – Aliya Gulamani 9 years ago
  • I would also add that you may want to narrow your focus to either plays OR musicals OR operas...all three have different conventions. I think an article discussing what movies could be turned into plays would be interesting. – Kewalder 9 years ago
  • For some insights, you might want to delve into films/novels and their respective musical/play adaptation as their had been many-- Billy Elliot, Lion King, Wicked, A Christmas Story-- and delve into why they received the movie/book to stage treatment and how the general audience embraced them. – AvaKane 9 years ago
