So, this weekend I was at ConnectiCon, a nerd gathering of smallish proportions in Hartford, CT. Ironically, a similar, yet much larger meeting was happening on the other coast–a little event you might know about called San Diego Comic Con. Yes, that is the one with all the movie sneak peeks, TV show panels, merchandise previews, and much much more. Though I did not attend the event, I was definitely on my phone, keeping myself up-to-date with the biggest stories, and as such I feel I can give you the (personal) coolest things I saw from this year’s SDCC….. online, at least.
Recently, you might have heard a bit in the forests of the internets that Downton Abbey, the popular BBC drama about an upper-crust British family in the 1920’s, might become a stage show. Granted, the specifics of said production have flip-flopped between it being an arena show or a theater production, but regardless it is something that will, in its basic form, be a musical. And thus, the question must be asked, what other TV shows should be translated to the stage? Though there will be disagreements, here are some series that deserve to get the musical treatment.
