This pair of reviews of two current shows based on movies is an interesting read. I recently finished the first draft on a one-act script that I’m hoping to take to the Kansas City Fringe Festival next summer that is also based on a movie. Do movies to stage adaptations play a role in theater? I believe they do, in much the same way that book to stage adaptations play a role, but scripts shouldn’t just be well written, they should posses the HEART of the movie in the show.
Weigh in on the comments.
