As far as theatrical pedigrees go, this show basically already won Westminster. Based on Hilary Mantel’s super creepy Booker Prize-winning historical novels, it originated with the Royal Shakespeare Company in London’s West End before hopping over the pond to Broadway for spring (the beginning of next month, to be precise.)
It’s every writer’s worst (and most bizarre) nightmare: You’re rescued from a car crash by your biggest fan, who then tortures you into writing your next manuscript exactly how she wants it. Stephen King brought us the psychological thriller in 1988, Kathy Bates started haunting our dreams with the movie three years later, and now we’re ready to see it live (this coming fall)--this time with Bruce Willis.
Savannah, Georgia--where the living is easy, until it’s not. John Berendt immortalized the famed town with the true story of the murder of a local prostitute (still the longest-standing New York Times best seller). The theatrical adaptation, coming to the stage this spring, will pair the chilling story with the tunes of Johnny Mercer and other standards from the American songbook.
Roald Dahl’s Wonka factory is the stuff Broadway dreams are made of, with outrageous costumes, sets and ensemble numbers full of Oompa Loompas. The show’s been running in London since 2013, and is now headed to Broadway with director Sam Mendes (American Beauty) at the helm.
There’s always something magical about seeing our favorite literary characters come to life. (Lookin’ at you, Harry Potter.) And while that usually happens on the big screen, it’s becoming a trend on the stage, too. Here are the best book-to-Broadway picks coming soon to Midtown.
