The famous movie is headed for the big stage!

“The Notebook” is being turned into a musical! You probably know the iconic Nicholas Sparks novel that got turned into the chick flick film of our generation. The Ryan Gosling/Rachel McAdams duo has stolen the hearts of many boys and girls around the world.

If you are a fan of the movie (which let’s face it, we know you are) then you’ve probably seen the movie a couple hundred times. Don’t worry – we aren’t judging…we are in the same boat as you. Now, you will have a new way to experience Noah and Allie’s epic love story.

We already know the musical is going to be flawless because of the people involved. Ingrid Michaelson will be writing the music and lyrics and “This Is Us” writer Bekah Brunstetter writing the book.

“When I was approached about working on the ‘Notebook’ I had to excuse myself and go to the bathroom and cry and come back into the meeting,” Michaelson shared in a press release. “I have loved the movie and the story for so many years now that the idea of turning it into a musical overwhelmed me.ā€ She adds, ā€œI actually started writing that very night of the first meeting, before I even had the job! I cannot wait for the world to hear these characters come to life in a musical way.ā€

Sparks adds, “I am thrilled to work with Bekah and Ingrid in order to make ‘The Notebook’ a reality on Broadway. They are amazingly talented, and obviously, the story is near and dear to my heart.ā€

So far there’s no word on when the musical may open.
