Will a musical adaptation of Nicholas Sparks' The Notebook bow on Broadway?

The Notebook

Bekah Brunstetter and Ingrid Michaelson have announced they are collaborating on a musical adaptation of Nicholas Sparks' best-selling 1996 novel The Notebook and eyeing a Broadway bow. The Notebook is a love story regaled by an elderly man at a nursing home about falling in love in the 1940s, with the couple (immortalised in the 2004 film adaptation by Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams) sharing an extraordinary romance and a life together until a tragic diagnosis of Alzheimer's. The Broadway musical will be produced by Kevin McCollum and Kurt Deutsch in association with Mr Sparks himself.
