I’m just saying that there is a reason why Dear Evan Hansen is a musical and Roadside Picnic is not.
Which one, how, and why?
Teo and the magic mechanics.
The one that I’ve already finished and published: no, because it would be really weird to have the characters sing about their feelings and it just wouldn’t work out.
But the story that I just started writing, that one would probably work as a musical because it already has music and songs in it To make a good adaption you’d probably have to cut out some details and focus more on the big moments but it could be good
Be more specific for why it didn’t work, it didn’t stop the creators of Wicked, Legally Blonde, Heathers, and Carrie.
True, I didn’t think of those But it would be difficult to find something the could sing about. It’s a romance story but slow-burn so all “romantic” songs have to be reeeally subtle. And some characters would never ever sing because that’s just not the way they are.
Hmm I see.
