Jordan Jacobs: Bed Knobs and Broomsticks would be an incredible stage experience! But it would be hard to replace Angela Lansbury...
Nik Cassin: I hope Bedknobs and Broomsticks as its a timeless Disney classic that would be a delight to see on the stage
Jordan Mann: BEDKNOBS AND BROOMSTICKS. It already has a wonderful collection of songs by the Sherman Bros. including - The Age of Not Believing, Portobello Road and more. Plus it brings together animated and live action sequences that would be a blast to see on stage.

The Sherman Brothers, who also scored "Mary Poppins" and "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang," penned music to this 1971 film based on the beloved book series by Mary Norton. Five-time Tony Award winner Angela Lansbury starred in the film that includes such songs as "Substitutiary Locomotion," "The Beautiful Briny" and the Academy Award-nominated song "The Age of Not Believing."
