    In the planning phase... Dumbo: The Musical

    Dumbo might be the next traveling show...

    Disney are reported to have at least 20 stage shows in development at the moment, though it seems unlikely that they’ll all see opening night. Of those that do, a number will not be Broadway productions, instead touring or being licensed to regional theatre companies. It’s only the select few that will see The Great White Way, though what will qualify a show to be select, I don’t quite know.

    One show that does seem set for a big, lavish production is the stage musical version of Dumbo, as currently being planned by Billy Elliot director Stephen Daldry. It was his idea to mount the adaptation in the first place, and in the few months since he approached Disney with his pitch, he’s been in “he very initial stages” of working up what the show might entail.


    The NY Post reported that Daldry had been working on the show but had now left; the NY Times followed this up with a quote from an unnamed Disney executive that said Daldry was still firmly attached, adding “This is Stephen’s idea, and he’s very passionate about it”.
