The Notebook: the Musical
Yup, you read that right.
Nicholas Sparks’ The Notebook is officially becoming a Broadway musical. It will (relatively) soon join the likes of other mega-hit movie-musicals like Mean Girls, Pretty Woman, and Frozen.
At least considering the cult following it’s gathered since it was released in 2004, I’m betting it’ll be a hit.
Think that’s exciting enough?
Bekah Brunstetter (writer of The Cake and supervising producer of a little show called This Is Us) is writing the book and Ingrid Michaelson is taking on music and lyrics.
Produced by Kevin McCollum (In the Heights, Avenue Q, Rent), Kurt Deutsch (Sh-K-Boom & Ghostlight Records), and Sparks himself, the rest of the team is being assembled as we speak, so keep your eyes peeled for updates.
I know mine will be.
