What kind of original ideas can we think up of? There has been every kind of musical written to this day, but if you have an idea or ideas, lets hear them!
You've gotta have heart AND music

My favorite book is Roberton Davies' Fifth Business. Its a wonderful story that I always envisioned would make a great stage play or musical.

I would write Pleasantville as a musical. It is just screaming, yelling, DYING to be made into a Broadway show.

I began a musical about my relationships with two of my ex-boyfriends. It's kind of complicated, but the two stories intertwine with each other. It covers things like knowing one person is better, but not being in love with that person, and being separated when one joins the military. It's just for fun.

If I were to write a musical, I would write a musical version of "Revenge of the Nerds". This would probably be done in the same fashion as "Hairspray". I think it would be a hilarious adaptation.

I am writing one and it's about the ethics of compassion.

a comedy about a small town where everyone is related and has to leave town and go to the big city to get a woman to marry. A bunch of wrenches thrown in a bit of pandemonium and everything works out but not quite the way one might expect it to work out.

one that I am currently writing deals with a complicated love quartet, and I was working on a musicalization of BUT IM A CHEERLEADER hoping I could win the rights after the material was done...well, that didn't work out, I kinda wish I could send the writers my material and tell them to use it.

I was up one evening at 2 a.m., convinced that making Picture of Dorian Grey into a musical was one of the best ideas ever. After writing some truly trite and horrendous music, I fell asleep and discovered Rupert Holmes has already done it. Hurray!

My friends and I are writing a musical based off of our beloved band hallway in our high school. The Band Hallway is basically in a world of its own, so we figure why not create characters based off of the theatre people that dwell there and write lyrics for hysterical songs that deal with the problems of high school and our personalities. We've only jotted some ideas down, but its still really fun!
