The Prince and the Dressmaker Gets Unexpected Adaptation
Jen Wang’s adorable historical fantasy The Prince and the Dressmaker is serving as inspiration for an unexpected adaptation.
Playbill reports that Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Bobby Lopez, who are known for winning an Oscar for “Let It Go” from Frozen, are working on a movie musical version of the graphic novel. “The team is working with Pulitzer Prize finalist Amy Herzog (4000 Miles) to adapt the graphic novel by Jen Wang.”
The couple wrote the scores for Frozen, Coco, and Frozen 2. Lopez was previously the composer-lyricist of Avenue Q, which won him a Tony Award. With the amazing fantasy dresses of the book, and the fairy-tale like love story, I can see this doing well on stage.
