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.
Deaf West’s production of SPRING AWAKENING floored the critics when it premiered in California, prompting the Los Angeles Times to write, "It's hard to enumerate all the ways in which Deaf West's SPRING AWAKENING is so very, very good." Now this unapologetically brilliant new production is coming to New York.
