Hollywood being Hollywood, the success of Glee and The Sound of Music Live! could only mean one thing: a rush to jump on a bandwagon that we already know is fabulous: musicals. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Romeo & Juliet: The Pop Musical is currently being developed for Fox.
Romeo & Juliet is just one of a number of classic titles that Boardwalk Entertainment Group and RCA Records have teamed up to produce as event TV series and possibly staged musicals (if everything works out). Other musical adaptations, with original songs, being worked on include Robin Hood, King Arthur and Jack the Ripper.
While we wait for all of this to turn up on our TV sets, let us re-live Audra McDonald’s rendition of “Climb Ev’ry Mountain” for The Sound of Music Live! Just because.
