Princess Bride Comes to Live Theater

posted by Nell Minow

One of the most quotable movies of all time, “The Princess Bride,” is being developed as a play. It was originally a book by Oscar-winner William Goldman, then the beloved movie with Robin Wright, Cary Elwes, Mandy Patinkin, and Peter Falk.  Now Variety reports that Disney is working on a musical for the stage.  Time for more fun storming the castle!

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this movie! When our kids were home from school sick, this was the go-to-feel-better movie! Works so well, as laughter is so healing. Now the grandkids are equally hooked. Hope they get a good cast, ’cause the one in the film would be hard to beat. MAAWWAAGE!
