The box-office blockbuster movie La La Land, written and directed by Damien Chazelle and starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, is set for the stage in a big new musical production.
The movie won countless movie awards including Oscars, Golden Globes and BAFTAs, and made hundreds of millions at the cinema box office when it came out in 2016.
And now the movie is being turned into a live stage show for Broadway – and hopefully London’s West End.
La La Land tracks the rocky love story of a hopeful actress and a failing jazz pianist set against the backdrop of a dream-like LA.
The songs for La La Land were composed by Justin Hurwitz, with lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (The Greatest Showman, Dear Evan Hansen).
Bartlett Sher (My Fair Lady, The King & I) is set to direct the Broadway production, produced by Marc Platt (Wicked, Dear Evan Hansen).
