While I agree. I get different joys watching the two different movies. TGS is much more feel-good, whereas La La Land ultimately broke me with the ending.spiritboy wrote:Just watched this. While it wasn't as good as La La Land, TGS is a solid musical.
If we take Inflation into consideration Grease is bigger by far though I mean 180+ million was a hell of a lot more in the 70s than nowSpartan wrote:It could potentially overtake Grease. I didn’t realise how great B&TB did at the Box Office.

This could transition so well to Broadway. Much better than Frozen has - even though Frozen has received great critical acclaim, Elsa and Anna are such well known characters that people find it almost jarring seeing actors who don't look exactly like them portray them on stage. I don't think Greatest Showman would have that issue though. You'd need a very talented singer to portray Rebecca Ferguson's character though, I don't want any random murdering Never Enough.JimJim wrote:How long is gonna take this to hit Broadway?

I don't necessarily think so, there's a whole new generation now who are probably unaware of that musical so I think it could find it's audience quite easily. I just hope it doesn't cost as much to see as the likes of Hamilton.SholasBoy wrote:I don't know if the fact that "Barnum" has been such a long running show is going to hamper getting this to Broadway.
