By “need to become,” I mean that they should be Hamilton/Wicked/Les Misérables level productions.
1. Pride and Prejudice
Listening to Mr. Darcy sing…sold.
2. The Great Gatsby
Imagine the complicated harmonies resulting from Daisy, Tom, and Gatsby singing at the same time (“One Day More” style).
3. Wuthering Heights
The romance. The setting. The drama…
The original version. I imagine the monster and Frankenstein would have incredibly moving songs.
What do you think? What books do you wish would be adapted into a musical? Let me know in the comments!
