Disney on Broadway

Are there any Disney movies that you would like to see become shows on Broadway? There's been Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, The Lion King, and Mary Poppins. I recently heard that Dumbo is being turned into a Broadway show and I personally thought that was an odd choice. I might be a little biased, though, cause I can't stand that movie!

But it got me thinking about what would be a good show? Thoughts, anyone?
DH me

No ticker for me

Tarzan was also a Disney Broadway show, although short lived. I found it interesting.

I think Toy Story would make for an excellent Broadway Show.

I think THe Princess and the Frog would make an excellent musical stage show.

Imagine it, Create it.

Dumbo as a musical? I'm sorry, but no. Just...no.

I personally think A Goofy Movie would be a great choice for a show. The music is just so catchy, and I can already think of a guy to play Powerline. It would be tricky, but I think it could be done.

I agree with Emperor's New Groove being a good show, along with The Princess and the Frog.

I have a wild idea for a new Broadway show: Phineas and Ferb: the Musical (forgive me because itsnt a movie).

LOL they already have alot music and a billion diffrent plots they could use (in fact their remaking the first episode as a musical on the show), I would just love to see Dr.Doof sing a solo .
