Purple Rain - The Musical. Should it happen?

We know that Prince loved musicals and that at different points in his career he planned to write one. I believe that, whether we like it or not, Purple Rain the musical is going to happen. It would be a project for the masses rather than the fans; I would go to watch it, even though I'm not sure how I feel about the idea. So - should it happen?

No.

We don’t mourn artists because we knew them. We mourn them because they helped us know ourselves.

So it would cost about $10 million or so to mount on Broadway? Sting's show just tanked, losing a fortune. If they wanted to go ahead with it, hire Lin-Manuel Miranda to write it, and shape the songs into the narrative. I think it could work. "American Idiot" was a sensation. Why not "Purple Rain?"

Why would you have someone else write songs for something that was already a musical?

That's my thought - right now it would be a terrible idea, but in time it is going to happen, and I'm sure most of us will watch it.

I've been saying this for years! Purple Rain should become a Broadway musical! It's a perfect idea.

If it isn't done right, it could end up a repelling disaster...

yeahthat Now is not the right time. However, eventually, a musical would be great. A musical would help keep Prince's legacy alive.
