Archie Planning Their Trip to Broadway
With the success of the Archie reboot and the possible television show, Archie has been everywhere lately. Now Archie is even planning a Broadway musical. Remember, this is coming off of the heals of the failed comic book adaption of Spider-Man on Broadway, Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark
Adam McKay will be the playwright behind the production with a songwriter still unannounced. Adam McKay has worked on films like Anchorman
and Talladega Nights
. McKay describes the musical to be "bright, colorful, and slightly demented." Archie Comics CEO John Goldwater and chief creative officer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa will also be involved in the production.
I personally think Archie is a great fit for Broadway. Archie and the gang are part of a band which I think can translate to the Broadway stage very well. What do you think about this piece of news? Are you excited to see Archie on Broadway? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
