Disney Theatrical Developing ‘The Princess Bride’ for the Stage
Disney Theatrical Prods. has embarked on a stage adaptation of "The Princess Bride" in a deal shepherded by Alan Horn.
With no creative team yet attached, it’s not yet been decided whether the developing show will be a play or a musical. Either way the production will be entirely unrelated to the prior attempt to turn the property into a musical, which was scuttled in 2007 due to a rights disagreement between composer Adam Guettel (“The Light in the Piazza”) and book writer William Goldman, who wrote both the original 1973 novel and the screenplay for the 1987 movie version.
