Early Breakfast with Jenni Falconer 4am - 6am
There's been a recent trend of films heading to the stage in musical form. So here's the latest gossip from theatreland...
We first fell in love with the story of the Gangster Granny by David Walliams on the page, then the screen and now its heading the the West End and beyond thanks to a recent stage production! David Walliams looks hilarious in this shot with the granny herself....and he appears to have stolen her mobility scooter, LOL! Photo: Getty
It was a blockbuster hit film starring Jack Black before it rocketed to Broadway and became a smash hit musical, but now it's heading to London's West End! The classic feel good comedy starred the 47-year-old actor as a teacher who starts a rock band with his students. School Of Rock The Musical will be at the New London Theatre from the 24th October 2016. Photo: Facebook - School Of Rock The Musical
The heartbreaking story of the Russian princess is being adapted from the film we all know and love into a musical due to open at New York's Broadhurst Theatre next April. A teaser on the musical's Facebook page gives us a small clip of the spine tingling song 'Journey To The Past' which will feature in the show. Let's hope it does well and transfers to London's West End! Photo: Facebook - Anastasia The Musical
