There may be a number of Hollywood movies adapted from stage plays, but there is now a steady increase on the number of movies originally written for the screen getting Broadway makeovers. These movies turned into Broadway musicals provide a fresh treatment to what stage plays typically offer. This time, it's the other way around in terms of the creative process of translating films into theatrical productions. Interestingly, these adaptations from motion picture blockbusters come from a variety of movie genres. Such film franchises originally using cinematic language tend to transform into theatrical pieces with a ready fan base and a tried-and-tested branding.
