Re: What should be the next musical adapted for the movies?
I like Wicked a lot, and *love* Once (though that was a movie before Tony-winning musical, so that's out), but I think Book of Mormon has a shot to be made soon.
It's been well-reviewed and made a ton of money, and there's a segment of society that'd probably go see a musical from the South Park guys that wouldn't normally go see a musical on the big screen. Another point in its favor is that Trey Parker and Matt Stone formed a production studio earlier this year. I'd imagine Book of Mormon is pretty tempting as an early project for them.
Travel's fatal to prejudice, bigotry, narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things can't be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's life.
