For a full list of shows that have been adapted from movies, head to our Best Broadway Shows, From Screen to Stage guide.

The Notebook

Page, screen, stage! Allie and Noah arrive on Broadway in the musical adaptation of The Notebook, based on Nicholas Sparks' 1996 best-selling novel and the 2004 motion picture of the same name.

Back to the Future

This is heavy! Back to the Future has made its way to the stage in a high-voltage adaptation by the film’s creators Bob Gale and Robert Zemeckis. When Marty McFly finds himself transported back to 1955 in a time machine built by the eccentric scientist Doc Brown, he accidentally changes the course of history. Now he’s in a race against time to fix the present, escape the past and send himself... back to the future.

Chicago

Get ready for some razzle dazzle! Though Kander and Ebb's classic musical originated on stage, Chicago was brought to the screen in 2002 in an adaptation that went on to win six Academy Awards, bringing the story to an even wider audience. The tale of Vaudevillian murderesses Roxie and Velma is still going strong, having just celebrated its 27th year on Broadway!
