The Great White Way
"Give my regards to Broadway, remember me to Herald Square, tell all the gang at Forty-Second Street that I will soon be there."
George M. Cohan
I believe that Broadway has been resting on her laurels. She's become lazy. Relying on tired revivals and hackneyed concepts. Would that be the Broadway that Lunt and Fontaine dreamed of? No!
With this in mind, I have concocted a list of suggestions that will give The Great White Way a swift kick in the fanny. Why can't Fargo be a lavish, musical extravaganza? Yeah, I don't know either.
My column that explores these possibilities and more is Ten Films That Should Be Broadway Musicals.
Have a look. I know you want to.
