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.
“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.” She adds, “I 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.”
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.”
So far there’s no word on when the musical may open.
