Katie Boyer so many great books on Broadway now!


KIERAN The Hidden Oracle
Rick Riordan's The Hidden Oracle might make a good musical.


message 3: by Eric

Eric Lin Something really unexpected would be a great musical. Like Thomas Piketty's Capital in the Twenty-First Century - The Musical.


message 4: by Danny

Danny I think Patti Smith's Just Kids could make a pretty cool musical. Mohsin Hamid's Exit West would make a spectacular play.


Shelby The Princess Bride!!!!!!!
The Princess Bride
This would make an amazing musical! Imagine the brute squad singing!!


Lindsay ⭐ [TrulyBooked] The Chimes by Anna Smaill since music is the key to memory.

Suzie Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy would be amazing

message 10: by Margo

Margo Too many to name!!


message 11: by Carol

Carol Hardesty "The Prince and the Pauper", "The Rosie Project", "The Search for Delicious", "The Phantom Tollbooth", "If Only It Were True", "Penelope", and "Ella Enchanted".


message 12: by Amber

Amber "Anna Karenina", "Divine Comedy", "Orlando Furioso" and "Jerusalem Delivered"


Brittany One Day by David Nichols would make either a fabulous play or an interesting musical, I think


message 14: by Ange

Ange Beduze The Princess Bride

YES!!!! Lin Manuel Miranda needs to write it :)


message 16: by Tara

Tara I also agree that Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy would be amazing and that yes, Lin-Manuel Miranda needs to write it, but another book or series I think would make a great musical would be The Selection series by Kiera Cass. Not only would the costumes and sets be amazing, but America is a singer and a duet between Maxon and America would be gorgeous!

"The Girl Who Drank the Moon" by Kelly Barnhill
"The Hate U Give" by Angie Thomas
"A Visit from the Goon Squad" by Jennifer Egan
"The Monsters of Templeton" by Lauren Groff
"The Song of Achilles" by Madeline Miller
"Will Grayson, Will Grayson" by John Green and David Levithan


TheBohemianBookworm Well, I am not sure, would depend a lot on the score but Wuthering Heights would make a really good musical or even ballet I think. Such an expressive story with potential for creativity.


message 19: by Kyra

Kyra I think that 'When The Moon Was Ours' would be really cool, it could be written in the same poetic style as spring awakening


message 20: by [deleted user]

"We All Looked Up" by Tommy Wallach would be awesome because of how modern it is, and how much fun the characters are. Plus it would make people think because of the whole 'The World Is Ending' sceme :)


message 21: by Daisy

Daisy Paquet "The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making" would be good. :)


message 22: by Kate

Kate "The Rosie Project." I don't picture Don as a singer, true, but if it was done in such a way to make the songs sound really logical and precise. . . I think it has the potential to be amazing. And of course Rosie would have a bunch of amazing songs. And them singing together? Her parts would be a bit haphazard and his logical. I think it would make a nice contrast.

There is a Wuthering Heights musical, actually! I discovered this while making a musical book display for the library I work at, ha. I've not really listened to more than one song though, so I'm not sure how it is.

Lin-Manuel Miranda needs to write everything ever. xD


message 25: by K.

K. Neil Shusterman's "Challenger Deep." It would be the opportunity of a lifetime for whatever young actor was cast as Caden, since he'd essentially have to carry the show on his shoulders, and the rest of the cast would have to be super-talented also, since they'd each be playing two parts, one in the real world and one in Caden's dreams. It would also be a delight visually, and can you say "showtunes to make you cry"?

Also "The Five Stages of Andrew Brawley" by Shaun David Hutchinson, mostly because I think Death should have a showstopping solo at the end where she frees Andrew and tells him to go live his best life outside the walls. It would be the song of the season, no question.


message 26: by Sarah

Sarah That Lin Manuel Miranda "Name of the Wind"


message 27: by Jeff

Jeff One of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus would be very reminiscent of the show Carnage (in a way), but I'd still rather see it on film. Not everyone can afford to get to NY or even afford the tickets when Broadway tours. That being said, I love musicals and plays! Love!


message 28: by Jeff

Jeff Oh, maybe Fellside by M.R. Carey. It'd be a little difficult to do The Girl with All the Gifts (not impossible, but difficult). I think Fellside would be so cool as a show.


message 29: by Thomas

Thomas Krause 1984 would be a cool musical. :) Also, The Witches.


message 30: by Hanna

Hanna Gilman I probably have to go with a remade fairy tale so "The School of Good and Evil," think of the musicals they could write.


message 31: by Ben

Ben S animal farm would be a cool musical, but the costumes would have to be done right.


message 32: by Donna

Donna Lincoln in the Bardo. An amazing cast of characters whose stories lend themselves beautifully to the musical style. But only in the hands of a brilliant composer/lyricist.

Taylor Thomas wrote: "1984 would be a cool musical. :) Also, The Witches."

1984 is on Broadway right now -- albeit in play format. It's apparently so disturbing people are fainting, getting sick, and fleeing the theater.


Courtney Judy I would love to see Fahrenheit 451 as a musical.


Lisa_pizza History is All You Left Me would be a fantastic musical, its a real tear jerker


message 36: by Brian

Brian Cimins God's Psychiatry, Healing for Your Broken Heart

I have to second that!! That would be fabulous!


message 38: by Julia

Julia My friend wants to see Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick. I would like to see any classic sf like Fahrenheit 451, Dune, or Foundation, to name some .

I would love to see All American Boys by Jason Reynolds, or The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas.


Dystopian_lover look i know this sounds weird but i would love to see twilite on broudway


message 40: by Lorelai

Lorelai Lavani I would absolutely love to see the novel Cinder or any of the other books in the series as musicals. The depths of the characters could really be expanded through music and acting. :)


message 41: by Ben

Ben I would like to see Fablehaven by Brandon Mull as a Broadway show.


message 42: by Ben

Ben Legend would be a very good musical if they do it correctly.


message 43: by Louie

Louie Pegasus The Flame of Olympus by Kate o'Hearne, Just Ella By Margaret Peterson Haddix,or Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen


message 44: by Louie

Louie Also Cinder By Marissa Meyer


message 45: by Louie

Louie The Books Of Elsewhere #1 The Shadows by Jacqueline West
