Moving Fastly...Toward the Stage

Once, that indie gem I didn’t catch at a movie theater near me three years ago (but did, eventually, watch on DVD) is headed to Broadway.

Plans are underway to adapt the film for a potential fall debut.

The music and lyrics of film stars Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová, of course, will be featured in the show, which is a no-brainer since their “Falling Slowly” won an Oscar for Best Original Song.

Like the original source material, the Great White Way will be treated to the beautiful relationship that blossoms in Dublin between a busker and a piano-playing young immigrant – and you best believe I will be making the trip to New York to see it.
