Broadway, make room for The Notebook!
Singer-songwriter Ingrid Michaelson is currently writing music for a musical version of Nicholas Sparks' love-story classic, The Notebook. Michaelson revealed to Hoda Kotb of The Today Show on January 3rd, 2019 that she has been writing songs for this musical for a year and a half. Michaelson says with excitement, "It's been a long process for me, but it's been slowly building, and I haven't been able to talk about it until now!" We are ecstatic about this!
Later, Michaelson revealed that it is difficult to write for a character rather than for yourself and your personal feelings, making this a completely different writing process than what she is used to.
You can watch the full interview with Ingrid Michaelson here. If you need us, we'll be rewatching and rereading the classic story until we get more details on this show!
