With the advent of original movie musicals such as “La La Land” and “The Greatest Showman,” we are living in an exciting time for musical movies. Here are 15 contemporary musicals we feel would make excellent movies, with contemporary meaning Broadway premieres from 1997 onward:

1. ‘Hamilton’

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=639vfDnhOVw The sleeper hit musical of 2015 may have a feature-length movie coming — although maybe not for some time, as Lin-Manuel Miranda explained to The Hollywood Reporter. Considering the show’s success and resonance with American history, a film version seems inevitable by now!

2. ‘The Book of Mormon’

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GVJgmp2Tc2s Trey Parker and Matt Stone feel that it is “too soon” for a film version of the hilariously offensive musical, according to IGN, but the duo’s success and fanbase from the “South Park” franchise give this musical a cinematic advantage.

3. ‘Dear Evan Hansen’

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nlw8hp_vzec The most recent Pasek and Paul musical about a young awkward teenager has won the hearts of Broadway fans young and old. The success of songs such as “Waving Through a Window” has given the show massive appeal that should inevitably cross over to Hollywood.

4. ‘A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder’

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VtlcEvPDkfM This Edwardian Britain period comedy might not seem like a first-choice for a movie adaptation, but it might find a home with a more niche studio. Sony Pictures Classics, we’re looking at you!

5. ‘Come From Away’

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JAa3ncDQxYI This musical, set in Newfoundland shortly after 9/11, is planned to be made into a movie by the Mark Gordon Company, according to Broadway.com.

6. ‘In the Heights’

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UvVgm4imyj0 Miranda’s other great Broadway show has had a movie adaptation in development for years. However, in light of the recent Harvey Weinstein scandal, Miranda is trying to reclaim the rights to the project, Entertainment Weekly reports.

7. ‘Spring Awakening’

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xEYV5bNMZVo Since gaining more momentum from Deaf West Theatre’s Broadway revival production, the Sheik/Slater musical was reported in 2016 to be in development with Playtone, Tom Hanks’ company, by BUILD Series.

8. ‘Aida’

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=psYNVrgid9s Plans to turn the Elton John musical into a film were first announced in 2007, with Beyoncé being considered for Aida and Christina Aguilera as Amneris, according to ComingSoon.net.

9. ‘Something Rotten!’

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jnvF6A2DCAE There are numerous film adaptations of Shakespearean works, including parodies such as “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead.” A film version of the musical comedy “Something Rotten!” would be a welcome gem in the ever-growing Shakespearean vault.

10. ‘Next to Normal’

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vd6V287TLQQ This rock musical about a woman struggling with bipolar disorder and hallucinations is one of the more serious/dramatic choices on this list, and might be suitable as an HBO movie.

11. ‘Memphis’

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HC18kAT4eV4 The musical takes place in the 1950s Tennessee, when DJ Huey Calhoun becomes one of the first white DJs to popularize black music. After the show’s successful Broadway run and U.S. tour, the Mark Gordon Company announced plans to make the 2010 Tony Winner for Best Musical a feature film, the LA Times reports.

12. ‘The Drowsy Chaperone’

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cuGBg-iam2U Film director Fred Schepisi told The Boston Globe in 2014 that Geoffrey Rush, Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway and Barbra Streisand were interested in doing a film version of this Lisa Lambert/Greg Morrison musical, Playbill reports.  We can only imagine the amount of “show-off” a cast like that could carry!

13. ‘The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee’

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fZthti8hqLU This William Finn musical is a popular choice for high schools and community theatres. Some productions have “Parent-Teacher Conference” performances with one-liners that are too mature for a younger crowd, but this show would fit perfectly if filmed as a comedy targeted at older teens.

14. ‘Movin' Out’

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sv3-mDl0lCQ With the Hollywood success of “Mamma Mia!” it’s hard to understand why Billy Joel, one of America’s best-loved singer-songwriters, does not have a feature film for his own jukebox musical. No word of a future movie exists, but it’s never too late!

15. ‘Jekyll and Hyde’

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n4e_TCfmMrw There have been plans to make Frank Wildhorn’s most successful Broadway show into a Hollywood film since 2013, when RP Media bought film-producing rights, according to Playbill.

Perhaps a little too much since instead of revising for my exams I'm still trying to learn the choreography to Anything Goes. Anyway, I like musicals, but there are definitely some that you may not have heard of, whether they got robbed at the Tonys, don't have a cast album or just didn't get to Broadway.

Here are some of my insider secrets from my years spent backstage on Broadway:

Spitting Removes Blood

via GIPHY This may sound gross, but if you catch someone getting cut and then bleeding on a costume, have them spit on it and then rub gently. It will come right out. Please note that this is a remedy for small stains or drops of blood. For larger bloodstains (or if this completely grosses you out), just use a little hydrogen peroxide or soak the garment immediately in hot water before washing it right away with detergent.

A Razor Is a Handy Pill Remover

via GIPHY If a garment is starting to pill, get a cheap razor and rub it gently over the fabric to take the bumps right off.

Vodka Cures Odors

Vodka is the natural smelly fixer-upper. Put some in a spray bottle, and spray on anything that needs to be refreshed (armpits are a great place to start). Let the clothing dry before you let someone wear it again — you don’t want anyone to smell like a liquor cabinet.

You Can Use Baby Wipes to Remove Stains On the Go

When it only takes two wipes.
Remove stains by gently rubbing non-perfumed baby wipes on the garment.

Hairspray Takes Away a ‘Kiss’

via GIPHY Well, not literally. But if an actor gets any lipstick on a white starched collar, just spray hairspray on it until it’s moist, let it seep into the fabric and then rub gently with a wet cloth. Rubbing alcohol works, too. Also, hairspray is great for stopping runs in stockings and tights, as well as avoiding static cling.

Dryer Sheets Do Away With Deodorant Stains

Have a nasty white deodorant mark on your shirt? Take a dryer sheet to it. Rub gently, and it will come right off. A baby wipe will also work.

Sharpie Your Shoes

via GIPHY Got marked-up shoes you can’t use shoe polish on? Clear up any scuff marks and stains by just using a Sharpie marker (or fabric/shoe paints). Sharpies come in an array of colors and can help make shoes look as good as new. Use these tips to keep your costumes in tip-top shape, no matter what emergency befalls them.

Off-Broadway shows tell more niche, high-art stories, and some of them (“Hamilton” and “Dear Evan Hansen, to name a few) are lucky enough to transfer to Broadway venues. Others, such as “Heathers” and “The Last Five Years,” inspire cult followings while creating names for up-and-coming stars.

Here are 16 upcoming Off-Broadway shows we think will win the hearts of theater-goers:

Good preparation is the key to a future of successful auditions, so here are some tools to help you out:

1. Create an Audition Kit

https://img.buzzfeed.com/buzzfeed-static/static/2017-09/11/12/asset/buzzfeed-prod-web-07/anigif_sub-buzz-18188-1505147388-1.gif Before you are even signed up for an audition, start to prepare yourself for success. Making an audition kit is an often underestimated time-saver. Think of this kit as the essentials, as if someone handed over a guide for a perfect audition made specifically for you. While it should be personal to your needs, consider adding the following to your kit:
  • Monologues/Songbook: By including an expansive repertoire of monologues and songs you love and can bust out at the drop of a hat, all you’ll have to do when preparing for an audition is find one that fits the play or musical best. You shouldn’t have to prepare new material unless absolutely necessary. You’ll get brownie points if you protect each item in a plastic cover.
  • Printed Headshots: It helps to just have them ready to go instead of having to print them every time you audition.
  • Updated Resumes: The most professional ones are formatted to fit perfectly on the back of your headshot on high-quality paper.
  • Personal Essentials: This will be different for each person. Some performers feel best if they have a snack ahead of time, while others want a planner to help plan their day down to the second. Find out what gives you that extra edge on your audition day, and put it in your kit.
  • A Confidence Playlist: Songs have a great way of making people feel amazing and empowered, particularly when they’re about to audition.

2. Do Some Research

Look up the play so you know the characters and the ones you fit with best, and research the company so you know who will be in the audition room with you. Most importantly, look up your audition time and requirements and over-prepare. Nothing makes a person more jittery than not knowing what’s going on.

3. Plan Your Outfit

Know which audition outfits are appropriate and flattering to the style of the show and you as a performer. Confidence can only double when you know you look amazing.

4. Practice With a Friend

via GIPHY Have more than just your eyes on the piece. Other people can easily catch things you may have never considered, and you can do the same for them.

5. Plan the Day Out

via GIPHY Sometimes, planning in advance can make all the difference. Know what time you’ll be there so you’ll know what time to leave, eat breakfast and wake up. If you give yourself time checks, you’ll have room to breathe and take your time.

6. Show Up Way Too Early

Give yourself time to arrive in the space, but don’t waste time over-rehearsing. Be there with time to feel completely comfortable.

7. Be Friendly to the Stage Manager

He or she is there to help, and it makes both of your days a lot easier.

8. Ground Yourself

Find the things that work for you, whether it’s practicing mindfulness, extending ki, meditating, doing yoga or going to the bathroom and yelling affirmations at your reflection. When auditioning, the most important thing is to know what makes you feel your best and then do it. Auditions get better over time, but you can expedite this process by knowing yourself and your comfort zone. Break a leg!

The difference? Emotions that are typically spread out over several days are packed into a few fitful minutes as you wait for your entrance. In the wings, time feels like it’s moving in slow motion, as you deal with blinding spotlights, your heart pounding in your ears and a costume that won’t stop digging into you in the wrong places.

Here are 16 thoughts performers have while waiting to go onstage:

1. Is my mic on?

via GIPHY

2. Oh no. I need to pee. Again.

via GIPHY

3. *IT’S THE FINAL COUNTDOWWWWN*

via GIPHY

4. I might puke.

via GIPHY

5. Wait, I think I’m OK.

via GIPHY

6. Is there a bucket somewhere in the wings? Just to be safe.

via GIPHY

7. If I fall off the stage, I wonder if the front row will catch me.

via GIPHY

8. Did I turn off my curling iron/hair straightener/oven?

via GIPHY

9. I hope my hands dry out before I have to pick anything up. It’s like I’ve taken a shower.

via GIPHY

10. Is that my mom? Oh, she’s seen me. Mom. No, Mom, stop waving! This is not my elementary school recital!

via GIPHY

11. I’m a terrible hack. What am I doing here?

via GIPHY

12. Is that guy in the first row picking his nose?

via GIPHY

13. Wait, did I miss my cue?

via GIPHY

14. What’s my first line again?

via GIPHY

15. I’mamazing, I’mamazing, I’mamazing, I’mamazing.

via GIPHY

16. I am freakin’ Beyonce! I was born for this!

via GIPHY And just like that, you’re off, making your entrance with the conviction of a general charging into battle. Your momentary panic is forgotten the minute you set foot on that stage. And the feeling of that first step is magic, every single time.

What runs through your head while waiting in the wings? Let us know in the comments below!

I guess that the majority of people will answer positively. The choice of a country, city or town where you are going to live can become one of the most significant life decisions. Especially if you are a filmmaker and, except inspiring you and offering a lot of professional opportunities, your place of living should be as comfortable as it only can be. There are a lot of guides which have already done all the estimations according to different criteria: a city’s film activity, film infrastructure and other criteria such as population size, local tax schemes, the availability of different geographical locations etc. We have also decided to create our list of top places where filmmakers live and work, so if you are planning to start your filmmaking career or change something in your life, you can easily choose any location from our list. Vancouver, Canada Vancouver is the perfect city for those, who want to present a blockbuster and a romantic melodrama. Taking into consideration how many famous actors and producers are from this city and currently living there, it should be mentioned that Vancouver is a worthy destination for filmmakers. Together with beneficial tax schemes offered by the district, the statistics show that the Canadian city has hosted two dozens of new serials in 2017 and nearly 200 commercial projects. The Vancouver’s reputation as a filmmaking city is now fast-growing because it has a well-developed infrastructure for producers (including many stages for film motion, transport locations, professional education institutions, where you can find both professionals and assistants). A lot of experienced producers describe this place as a welcoming one with friendly film community. Atlanta, the USA Let’s talk about not that world-famous film cites in the USA. Last year the film sphere in Atlanta managed to add $ 6 billion to the city’s economy. Although this city refers to the developing one regarding the filmmaking industry, it now poses the 3rd most significant film production industry in the USA, and due to professionals’ expectations, it won’t stop. Atlanta is too attractive as in Georgia you can still find a lot of permit-free locations, which are ideal for the film producers. It is also not a difficulty to apply for the tax preferences in this state and receive a positive answer. You can find here a flourishing production infrastructure and the brightest talents, willing to make their film career and enter the filmmaking industry. It’s not only the weather that is hot in Georgia. London, the United Kingdom  Even if you haven’t been in London, you must have seen its attractions in too many films. Obviously, you’ll know Westminster, Big Ben, Buckingham Palace and Tower Bridge at a glance, as who hasn’t seen the Bond films? London is a so much wanted location for films for a significant period of time. Some even call it “the European Hollywood”. Except for perfect places, national schemes, you can also find in London dozens of film finance companies, f.e. Red Rock Entertainment. Just a quick note: the Bond films, the Harry Potter franchise and DC Extended Universe movies belong to some of London’s studios. Berlin, Germany  Another European capital, but with the other filmmaking direction. Berlin holds the position of the best place for low-budgeted and indie films. In the filmmaking industry, the German capital is thought to be more for creativity than even commercial production. It attracts filmmakers, actors and writers, who are willing to create masterpieces. Just like in case with the mentioned above cities, Berlin locations are too favourite among producers as they are worthy to be presented in different film scenes. The Berlin Film festival was established in 1951 and how it is one of the most honourable events in the filmmaking industry. Mumbai, India  This location as an opportunity to move in is quite discussible. Nevertheless, it is the heart of Bollywood. Hindi cinema produces more films in a year than Hollywood, and you can like you or not, but it is one of the biggest and money-bringing film industries in the world. Here was produced the majority of all Indian films, which are well-known in South and East Asia, the Middle East and some parts of Africa. It should be mentioned that recently Bollywood films are becoming more popular among the Western audience, so if you search for exotic locations and different approaches, then you’re welcomed in Mumbai. By the way, now there are a lot of film studios, which work in cooperation with the leading European and American film partners. So, as you have understood, the whole world is full of places, where you can get both inspiration and professional perspectives. Don’t hesitate and choose the best place to live and work.

Here are some items to keep with you to ensure you have exactly what you need at all times:

1. Headshot and Resume

If you are currently in audition mode, make sure to always carry a headshot and resume with you. These are your basic tools of your business as a performer, and there is absolutely no excuse to not have them.

2. Show Information/Postcards

If you’re currently involved with a school show or theatre production, make sure you carry the show’s postcards and/or information with the performance information so you can pass it along to anyone who asks you about it. Don’t be shy! Get the word out and make sure people can see you show off your talents.

3. Your Business Card

No matter what level of performer you are, invest in business cards. Your business card should contain your contact email, website, headshot and any other tidbits you feel someone should know if they’re interested in what you do as a performer. However, it isn’t necessary to list your personal phone number or your address on it — an email is enough.

4. Writing Utensils

Asking to borrow a pen, pencil or highlighter from a castmate is a big no-no. Make sure you always bring a writing utensil from home so you’re prepared to write things down, whether you’re at an audition or rehearsal. Also, keep in mind that while it may seem easier to keep your notes on an iPad or iPhone, these devices could possibly get lost or accidentally erased. Instead, have your notes written in a notebook (another thing you should always have with you), so you can always go back and reference them.

5. Recording/Video Device

Bring an iPad, iPhone or other type of recording device with you for lessons, rehearsals and auditions so you can always record or film your material. This way, you can always practice your music, choreography or blocking on your own time at home or in a rehearsal room.

6. Dance Clothes/Shoes

If you’re a dancer or a mover and are heading out to auditions or rehearsals, make sure you have your dance attire and shoes with you so you’re prepared to show off your moves. For a mover, relaxed clothing, stretchy materials and comfortable sneakers work great.

7. Audition Log

A notebook is a great place to keep a log of your auditions. Include what you wore, what you performed, who was in the room and the feedback you received. Keep it with you for easy reference. This way, when you meet people or re-introduce yourself to someone you have already met, you can reference how they reacted to you in the past. Or, you can use the notebook as a reminder of what you did in a first audition when preparing for a callback

8. Script/Sides/Music

Always bring your scripts, sides and music to any rehearsal or audition. Be a prepared performer instead of the schmuck who prints them out at the last minute, asks for copies from the monitor or borrows music from a friend.

9. Directions

Figure out how to get to your audition or rehearsal before you leave your home. Write out your directions ahead of time or make sure your phone is fully charged and that your maps app is working. You don’t want to be the performer who gets lost or is late because you couldn’t find your way.

Before they were forcing audiences to their feet, these stars were finding their footing as kids and teenagers. Here are our favorite childhood performances from our favorite Broadway superstars:

1. Wesley Taylor in ‘Footloose’

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8FX-4G4GVTk Wesley Taylor may be currently causing trouble as Plankton in “SpongeBob SquarePants: The Musical,” but once upon a time, he was playing the role of Wren in his high school production of “Footloose.” In this clip, he releases the footage of him singing “I Can’t Stand Still” as a teen before completely rocking the song at 54 Below. Note how Taylor is able to laugh at his not-so-smooth transition between his lines and his song. Hey, we’ve all been there.

2. Josh Groban, ‘Fiddler on the Roof’

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v5RIQg57rpw&t=2s This production of “Fiddler on the Roof” looks like any other high school show — if, you know, if they all starred vocal angel Josh Groban as Tevye. YouTube has a handful of clips from this 1999 production if your heart isn’t fully melted after watching him dance around the stage in “If I Were a Rich Man.”

3. Laura Osnes, ‘Peter Pan’

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2d0au_qHM7U We all thought we had an insider’s look at the beginnings of Laura Osnes’ career as we watched her climb her way to the top in “Grease: You’re the One That I Want.” But this clip rewinds a bit further to Osnes’ performance as Peter in “Peter Pan.”

4. Laura Benanti, ‘The Sound of Music’

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_5Y1cAte4Nk At age 19, Laura Benanti took over the role of Maria in the Broadway revival of “The Sound of Music” after Rebecca Luker left the show. Benanti became Luker’s understudy after attending New York University for only two weeks.

5. Anna Kendrick, ‘High Society’

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Pp1D5T-Ie0 At age 12, Anna Kendrick was nominated for a Tony Award in 1998 for her performance as Dinah Lord in “High Society” — and you can see why. She commands attention onstage and is a total icon in her ballerina costume.

6. Jeremy Jordan, ‘The Count of Monte Cristo’

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=edK7mdpuDdM In this clip, Jeremy Jordan shows off his classic belt in “Chateau D’If” in Ithaca College’s production of “The Count of Monte Cristo.” Also, though the clip below isn’t technically from when Jordan was a kid, he does do a pretty hilarious reenactment of his college audition and his accompanying nerves. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yWZNLa0M0Nw

7. Ben Platt, ‘Les Misérables’ and ‘Mame’

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v93UnWS0d98 TINY BEN PLATT! In this clip, Platt (billed as “Benjamin Platt”) wins hearts as 10-year-old Patrick Dennis in the 2004 Hollywood Bowl production of “Mame.” Below, Platt becomes less tiny (but just as adorable) as he sings “Bring Him Home” in the Kidz Theater’s 2012 spring productuction of “Les Misérables.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M4dOp6_yzNk

8. Lea Michele, ‘Les Misérables’

https://youtu.be/Aerh0i7JUgI Lea Michele seemed destined for stardom at a young age, starring as young Cosette at age 9 in “Les Misérables.” There is nothing miserable about her performance of “Castle on a Cloud” on “I’m a Kid & Already a Star!” As Michele told Nylon magazine, “I was a weird kid. I was eight years old saying, ‘I don’t want a day off. I’d like to work every day, please.’”

9. Nick Jonas, ‘The Hunchback of Notre Dame’

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3uulUSG97dU It’s impossible not to “aww” out loud at 9-year-old Nick Jonas leading the cast of “Beauty and the Beast” in the song “Someday” from “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” at the annual Gypsy of the Year competition.

10. Natalie Weiss, ‘Les Misérables’

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eyKLoZ7Tf4Q In this clip, 8-year-old Natalie Weiss is literally every theatre kid since the beginning of time as she sings “On My Own” to her sick mother as her dad accompanies her on piano. Weiss has a great sense of humor about this performance, urging viewers to “notice the shoulder shaking, fake vibrato, committed acting and amazing pitchiness.” Check out Weiss tackle this song again in 2011 below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0lzRHU9r-Ss
