Movie musicals tend to lend themselves pretty easily to the Broadway stage. It's easy to see the songs and theatrics playing out live, and most great musicals seem to make the jump to Broadway at some point or another. The latest musical to hit theaters is The Greatest Showman, the Hugh Jackman-led movie about the rise of P.T. Barnum's circus act. The big musical numbers and high-flying acts are making some wonder if a live-action show is in store for The Greatest Showman, and the director Michael Gracey thinks it would be a great idea.
