10 Movies That Should Be Broadway Musical

Musicals are something that can make you feel whole, can bring light to your life, and can make you think. But seeing an original musical is hard and often we get to look to our favorite movies to inspire the latest Broadway hit. 

With shows like Kinky Boots, American Psycho: The Musical, Amėlie, and more, Broadway loves a movie musical.

1. Across the Universe

It is interesting that we haven’t really had a Broadway show using the songs of the Beatles yet and there’s something about Across the Universe that just works so translating the film to stage would work incredibly well.

2. Zodiac

Zodiac is David Fincher's 2007 film that follows the case of the Zodiac Killer in the San Francisco area in the late 60s. So why not make it a musical?

3. I, Tonya

So, there was a show about Tonya Harding that was running in Soho for a while and I know this because I went to see it because I love I, Tonya so much but I would love a musical about the infamous rise and fall of Tonya Harding during the 1994 Winter Olympics.

4. Rocketman

Making a stage musical out of a movie musical would be easy and yet it has taken years for Broadway to utilize it. Moulin Rouge!
