BWW Feature: From Page to Stage, Broadway Draws Inspiration From Literary ClassicsBWW Feature: From Page to Stage, Broadway Draws Inspiration From Literary Classics

Since the beginning of what is generally considered the traditional Broadway musical, shows have been adapted from other works. Classic shows such as SHOW BOAT and The King and I found the origins to their stories in novels. More recently, novel adaptations have found success with THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, and the 2014 Tony Winner for Best Musical, A GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO LOVE AND MURDER. (more...)
