Oh snap, Spider-Verse may have actually been what made me start to see the shape of a Hamilton adaptation.Use a direction that pushes the boundaries of filmed expression in the manner of, say, Spider-Verse
The obstacle that I see is that Hamilton is unlike a lot of musicals of which I'm aware in that many of the songs are kind of directed out past the fourth wall, as well as several that condense a significant range of time and place. I think they also often have an energy and rhythm that would not work well with the more obvious kind of work-around, such as montages.
But if it was in the hands of film creators that recognised those qualities and employed the appropriate editing and style to make them pop, it could work pretty well.
Is that a case in which the stage lost a lot of the film techniques that made it stand out on screen became lost? This statement doesn't exactly address my point about what in film helped to make a musical....Moulin Rouge is a movie that was then adapted for the stage.
Some do, but Cats is already so distinct among stage shows that I feel as though it's already equipped with features that are waiting to embrace film.Grumpygoat said:A stage show will need extensive changes to work on film
It is relevant to addressing a person inferring that the show's barebones and kind of abstract story is an obstacle to it having appeal.Grumpygoat said:to the point that the decades long success of a Broadway show is nearly irrelevant to it working successfully on film.
