'Water for Elephants' Will Become a Broadway Musical!
Water for Elephants, the popular book turned into a movie, will now become a big Broadway musical!
The story follows “aspiring veterinarian Jacob Jankowski as he joins the staff of Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth, working with the circus’ new elephant. He bonds with the show’s equestrian star, who is married to its charismatic but troubled animal superintendent.”
“I have loved Sara Gruen‘s Water for Elephants since it was first published and was captivated by its theatricality,” producer Peter Schneider said in a statement (via The Hollywood Reporter). “It is so dramatic — a woman who is trapped in a relationship for all the wrong reasons meets and falls in love with a man for all the right reasons. Throw in an elephant as a matchmaker and you have the potential for a show of great imagination and emotional depth.”
