Dances With Wolves, the Musical?

Pursuitist Luxury Best Luxury Blog

A Broadway-aimed musical is being developed from the novel “Dances With Wolves,” which tells the culture-clash story of a Civil War-era U.S. Army lieutenant who bonds with the native Sioux nation as white people push into the American Dakota frontier. Matt Murphy, a producer on Broadway’s Memphis, Impressionism and Thurgood, told Playbill.com that he has acquired the stage rights to Michael Blake’s 1986 book, which is better known as an Academy Award-winning 1990 film that starred Kevin Costner (it won Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay, among other Oscars). Murphy is putting together a writing team to adapt the novel into a musical for the Broadway stage. He expects the score to have music inspired by folk, Appalachian, Civil War and Native American music. – from PlayBill
