NBC is currently planning another musical to broadcast live on television during the 2014 holiday season. While the network hasn't made its wish list public, Playbill.com decided to share our picks for the family-friendly musicals we would like to see on screen and who should star.
NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt, along with producers Neil Meron and Craig Zadan, previously stated that they were identifying musicals that were well-known titles with identifiable scores that the whole family could enjoy.
Featuring the Broadway classics “To Life (L’Chaim!),” “If I Were A Rich Man,” “Sunrise Sunset,” “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” and “Tradition,” Fiddler on the Roof will introduce a new generation to this uplifting celebration that raises its cup to joy! To love! To life!
