I pick Smallfoot because of the Kirkpatrick brothers peppy soundtrack. And the messages are timely

I know they did a production of this in....California? Somewhere? But I'd love to see A Walk To Remember onstage.

I would love a musical based off of "The Grand Budapest Hotel" (or really any other Wes Anderson movie like "Moonrise Kingdom"re: movies you wish they would make into musicals; his colors are bright and vibrant, the characters are quirky and memorable, and there are plenty of laughs. "Eighth Grade" could also work really well and maybe be reminiscent of Thirteen. I'd also love to see an adaptation (maybe a straight play) of "Whiplash", the tension would build and crescendo beautifully in person.
