Coming Soon: “Monopoly The Musical”-Broadway is about to get the first of several board game productions.
Yes, the trend of reworking the old into new will see the board game Monopoly become….a musical! Hasbro is going all in and hired “go to” theater guy Rick Elice to write the book.
If you’re wondering what it will be about, sources say the musical is a screwball comedy set in Atlantic City during the Depression. One of the main characters is Charles Darrow, who’s credited with inventing the game.
