    Why not make a Nightmare Before Christmas.....

    ......Broadway Show

    I honestly think Nightmare Before Christmas would make an amazing show!
    The sets could be awesome, the characters are endless, the songs are great, and the story is amazing. I've been a huge fan of this movie since it came out and I've always pictured a show being made from this movie.
    The only thing that would have to be done is Jack would have to be an animatronic that moves around the stage. He couldn't be played by an actor or else it just wouldn't look right. He would have to stay skinny, tall, and move just like the actors. I honestly think this could be done with different sets and the stage set up in the right way. He could be controlled from underneath the stage and with the right lighting and choreography, it could work!

    Don't think he needs to be animatronic.... you don't need to think so literal. After all, look at lion king. The basics they need is a very skinny, tall guy that can be Jack and very good makeup.

    If you look at him proportioned to "regular" sized characters he's way too tall for a real person to play. I think a puppet or animatronic type of Jack would make the show unique.

    I bought a great custom made mask that looks exactly like Jack one year. It's nothing like all of the cheap masks out there now. I wore it with a suit where I drew the pinstripes on and although the costume came out great, it just didn't look right because I couldn't get any taller or skinnier.
    It just didn't look like the real Jack. (It also doesn't help that I'm a perfectionist........)
    I was going to try stilts but didn't have time to go all out on it.

    They can do allllll kinds of things to avoid an animatronic Jack. Even stilts that are a foot or two high--there are some amazing things that can be done.

    I speak for my entire family when I say IT WOULD BE AWESOME!

    We all love Nightmare for various reasons in our household. I think it could be a beautiful stage production.

    I think it's a great idea. Afterall, they turned another Tim Burton film into a musical play.

    Just remember without a well written Disney Villain, there would be no point in the Heroes and the Princesses. Have you hugged a Disney Villain today?
