Why haven’t they made My Best Friend’s Wedding into a musical yet?

With a new movie musical coming out every other day, I wonder why nobody’s thought of turning rom-com favorite My Best Friend’s Wedding into the next Broadway sensation.  Think about it.  The soundtrack is comprised almost entirely of Burt Bacharach/Hal David songs, so you’ve got your music theme right there.  And it’s a cheesy, wedding-related chick flick, which will attract the Mamma Mia crowds when that show inevitably ends its run.

Let me know what you think of this idea, and/or if you want to give me money for it.

  1. I’m excited for Sister Act, the Musical to come to Broadway. Now that’s a show! Plus there’s the whole gospel angle…smart, songwriting-wise.
