Katharine Definitely Tell the Wolves I'm Home by Carol Rifka Brunt. I can't shut up about this book. I recommend it to everyone.
Another book that would make a great play, but maybe not so much on Broadway as in children's theatres, would be The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate. I can't shut up about Ivan, either. It's a book everyone needs to read, children and adults alike.

Megan Schinker As an avid book reader and Broadway fanatic, I think The School for Good and Evil would be pretty cool to see on Broadway. I definitely recommend it as an AWESOME read and I look forward to finishing the series (as soon as I can get my hands on the books, that is!)

Genelle Clark 1984 by George Orwell would be interesting

Tori Young I think Caraval would be super cool to see. Not sure how they would do it though...

message 28: by Tessa

Tessa The Count of Monte Cristo. The betrayals, the vengance, all set to music? That would be the best.

My life would be complete if this became a Broadway musical.

(The Princess Bride would also be phenomenal!)

Robyn Markow I think many of Anne;Rice's books VC books(Like "Interview With A Vampire" )would lend themselves well to being musicals.;She also did a non VC Book called "Cry To Heaven'a about a boy singer in Italy who becomes a Castrati For those unfamiliar w/that term (which I don't think I spelled correctly )it's when they would Castrate young boys in order to keep their voices high. Luckily it isn't done anymore(the book takes place in the 17th Century) But it was a fascinating story that dealt with the Opera World as the singer grows up, & becomes big star. He also and fails love w/a woman who loves him in spite of his being Castrati. I wouldn't include any scenes of how they did that procedure though!

message 41: by Jasper

Jasper We are the ants would make a great play

Jack Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie

Julie R To Sir With Love would make a good musical. A lot of opportunities for some good dance numbers and songs. Could give a chance to some talented teen actors who are interested in musical theater. I also agree that To Kill a Mockingbird or A Time to Kill would make good stage plays.

Kaylen I think that The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton would make a great rap and hip-hop musical. Of course, it would have to be done really well (and if anyone could write a good hip-hop/rap, it's Lin-Manuel Miranda). ;-)
