    With The Prom, In The Heights, and Dear Evan Hansen all getting upcoming film adaptations. What Broadway Musical do you think is most overdue for a film adaptation? I’m not counting Hamilton as the Disney+ version already counts.

    FYC Oscars: Soul (Best Picture, Original Screenplay, and Original Score), Delroy Lindo (Best Actor), Chadwick Boseman (Best Actor), Viola Davis (Best Actress), Paul Raci (Best Supporting Actor)

    FYC Golden Globes (TV): Ted Lasso (Best Comedy Series), Jason Sudekis (Best Actor in a Comedy Series), Hannah Waddingham (Best Supporting Actress), The Boys (Best Drama Series), Anthony Starr (Best Actor in a Drama Series)

    Beautiful and Ain’t Too Proud sounds very likely. Wicked has been in development for a long time but we know that one is coming. It’s just the matter of when.

    Hadestown could work very well cinematically. Apparently Spielberg saw it and loved it while working on West Side Story, so if that works out maybe he could direct this show too.

    There is an alternate timeline where Wicked was released last Christmas instead of Cats and I always wonder what it world is like.

    I’d love to see Greta Gerwig direct a film adaptation of Beautiful: The Carole King Musical.

    I think Company has a shot. There’s an updated revival that was cancelled because of coronavirus but may still happen in 2021, and I can see that becoming material for a film adaptation, plus Noah Baumbach talked about a potential film version a lot when promoting Marriage Story.

    Not to say he’d direct, but I wonder if that plus the revival will spark interest in doing a movie version.

    I don’t think any major filmmaker or studio has the halls to adapt Book of Mormon in 2020

    Waitress and Jagged Little Pill seem like the most obvious followers to The Prom, Dear Evan Hansen, In the Heights – both stories set in the real world, focused on interpersonal drama. That seems to be the mode now as those are slightly “easier” (i.e. cheaper) to make

    “Urinetown”

    It’s so drenched in stagecraft that it could never be properly transferred.
