When Little Miss Sunshine was released in the summer of 2006, moviegoers and critics fell in love with it, and for good reason! The heartfelt and hilarious story of Olive, a pudgy, bespectacled seven-year-old, who wants to take home the coveted Little Miss Sunshine crown at an upcoming beauty pageant, and convinces her dysfunctional family to set out on a road trip was the perfect offbeat escape during the summer doldrums. It's also no wonder why James Lapine and William Finn decided to adapt the off-the-wall film into an even more far-out musical! Come to think of it, Little Miss Sunshine isn't the only wacky independent film with ripe material for a fun, flamboyant and catchy tuner. The debate dance in Napoleon Dynamite, the Japanese karaoke club in Lost in Translation and the "infinite" ride through the tunnel in The Perks of Being a Wallflower—our hearts are doing a little dance!
