This week I saw a couple of Broadway shows Jesus Christ Superstar and Porgy and Bess. I also went to the immersive theater production, Sleep No More, which I highly recommend. Halfway through Porgy and Bess, I started thinking about which Broadway shows have been turned into movies. Most of the Broadway-to-big screen movies that I’ve seen have been really great, but these ones are my favorites. It is fun to see the Broadway performances come alive on the silver screen, especially when the sets and locations are adjusted to a bigger budget. Unlike book-to-movies where I encourage reading the book before seeing the movie, I think you can watch either the Broadway show or movie first without ruining the other. What are your favorite Broadway-to-big screen movies?
