I asked the same question a couple months ago: https://www.broadwayworld.com/board/readmessage.php?thread=1118287Not criticizing because I know not everyone reads every post (me included). Just didn't feel like re-posting mine or others answers and I think there are some good ones in the thread!
I've thought Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog would be an amazing musical for a while, but I haven't seen any buzz about adapting it and although it has a cult following, most people have never heard of it.
I dont think it will ever happen and i think American Utopia is the closest we will ever get, but I would love to see True Stories become a stage musical.....

The time may have passed, but musical versions of Barefoot in the Park and The Odd Couple could have been quite good. I presume Neil Simon had no interest in having musical versions of those plays.

I feel that MY COUSIN VINNY is only a matter of time. It's going to happen. And the biological clock number us going to be great.
Neil Simon allowed a musical adaptation of his least favorite play, "Fools," but it never really took off. I saw a production in Pittsburgh directed by Mason Alexander Park; it was cute, but no more essential than the play itself. Just a fun diversion with a few pointed new political jokes.

"I think you could achieve it by simply having the actors in black & white costumes that start to become coloured in. The sets could also follow suit. A complete black and white room that starts to turn into technicolour bit by bit would be a great visual

I have been traveling for work a lot lately so been watching a lot of movies in-flight via Delta Studio. Not sure how successful either would be critically or commercially, but maybe Yesterday or Booksmart. At least both have somewhat original plots (although I think Booksmart is the better of the new two movies, its originality lies more in the way it approaches the story). Neither were exactly blockbusters (but then again neither were Waitress or The Band’s Visit) and wouldn’t have much of any built-in brand loyalty, but if done correctly, could be intriguing. The royalties for The Beatles catalogue for Yesterday would be expensive though.
I think The Truman Show is destined to become a musical eventually. Might be kind of tough to pull off the effect, since part of the point of the movie is understanding the massive scale of the operation, which might be difficult to convey on stage. But I feel like the story and tone would lend itself well to a musical, and I bet it will happen eventually.
