JDramaNickels: Nightmare Before Christmas, it could be a neon puppetry extravaganza!
Kelly Irelan: The Nightmare Before Christmas! It could be staged so beautifully. It's edgy in comparison to the Disney stories they've produced so far. I feel it has the potential to be both haunting and enchanting. The music is lovely. For me, it's a no-brainer. Nightmare is the obvious choice.

Tim Burton's delightfully dark 1993 stop-motion film musical features music by Danny Elfman. Songs include "This Is Halloween," "What's This?," "Oogie Boogie's Song" and "Sally's Song." It could be a great vehicle for Tony Award winner Gabriel Ebert.
