I felt a little sad when I heard about a Toy Story musical.

No, thanks. Please keep my childhood on the big and small screens, Disney.

I really want to see Little Mermaid and Mary Poppins on Broadway, and my school's putting on Beauty & the Beast this upcoming school year. Can't wait to see it!

I nominate a Song of the South stage adaptation. Yeah, yeah, there's been racial controversy about the movie, but look at what you can get away with on Broadway.

scarscar93 Really a Toy Story musical?

I'd love to see The Little Mermaid on stage as well, I've been watching some videos on YouTube and it looks really good.

I'm not entirely sure how elaborate or promoted it'll be, but I was flipping channels and when I got to Disney Channel there was a snippet mentioning a TS musical in the works.

It made me sad.

as far as i know, the toy story musical was one of their short musicals that disney is putting on one of the new cruise ships. (my friend auditioned for it and got a few callbacks too)

and if you get a chance, see mary poppins! not the best broadway musical that i have seen but you will have so much fun and be BLOWN AWAY by some of the stunts they do.

ps. i have heard pretty solid rumors of hunchback being the next broadway show :D hopefully that'll be a long awaited dream come true

We saw the traveling version of The Lion King Broadway show last week and it simply blew us away. I have very limited experience with Broadway shows but must say the music, effects, performances and choreography left my jaw on the floor.

I don't know about you, but I think the Hunchback of Notre Dame would be an INCREDIBLE musical. The music is very, very theatrical (especially The Bells of Notre Dame), and the plot is killer. I can imagine it being somewhat Phantom of the Opera-esque, very dramatic, but very pretty and moving.

Seeing The Lion King for the second time next February (the tour version again). I've seen Beauty and the Beast 3 times, though, and I loved it.

I enjoy the Tarzan soundtrack very much, wish it would tour. Not too crazy about Mary Poppins, and The Little Mermaid is iffy.

really? not to crazy about mp? have you seen it live?

i am in love with lion king and i am pretty sure that b&b was my favorite on broadway. it was the first show i had ever seen done though at a young age so i am pretty loyal to it haha. but next to those two, aida was simply amazing as well. not a disney story, but i am so glad that they produced it.

I agree Song of the South would be a beautiful musical if given the chance.

I saw Mary Poppins just a few weeks ago in NY and it was AMAZING! Even my DS7 and DS9 loved it.

The Lion King by far is the best musical of all time!!! and I love musicals!

I think Princess and the Frog would be cool... it would be challenging, but the music in it is AMAZING, and if they can do The Lion King, I am sure they could find some creative way I can dream at least.

Someone already said it but yes, they did do Hunchback on stage in Germany. At the time it was intended to reach New York, but never did. It was apparently still in development for adaptation in 2008, but that was the last time anything was mentioned about it.

For me I have seen Beauty and the Beast, Lion King, Aida, Tarzan, and The Little Mermaid. So basically... everything in New York so far besides Mary Poppins. I am not a fan of Mary Poppins to begin with so I have no desire to go see it. My family went without me and loved it, but I would rather go see Lion King again at full before going to see Mary Poppins at a discounted price.

Their stage productions I feel have gradually gone a bit down hill. Beauty and the Beast, Lion King, and Aida were all fantastic! Tarzan I personally loved more then the critiques seemed to but it had a few huge flaws in the plot changes they made that ruined the message of it as well as the character of Clayton. Annnnnnd then there was The Little Mermaid. God I am so happy only paid $26 for a standing room only ticket cus it was not worth much more then that. Total DISASTER. They took a bunch of staging elements that work well apart but put together created a total MESS. That plus the even more outrageous changes to the plot then what they did to Tarzan made it almost painful to watch. It had so much promise with the demo record I heard... and then it just didn't live up to all the hype.

As for what the future holds, the two titles that have been dropped though NOT confirmed are indeed Dumbo. What? I guess it could be cute with a little kid as Dumbo but there are SO many better plots out there to make into a musical. And though it pains me to say this the second title that is in heavy rumors is... Tim Burton's adaptation of Alice in Wonderland thought I DOUBT this is going to get much push at the moment since another production about Alice's adventures in Wonderland is already through workshops and projected for next season.


I have always thought that Hercules would make a great stage musical. It has the potential for some REALLY creative costuming and stage effects as well as I personally like the songs. It doesn't get enough credit in my opinion.
