Vanessa Hudgens Is Starring In A Workshop Of ‘The Notebook’ The Musical
Vanessa Hudgens is set to lead the first reading of the musical version of The Notebook.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Vanessa is portraying the “middle” Allie, a character played by Rachel McAdams on screen (opposite Ryan Gosling), who engages in the most highlighted part of their love affair.
Ingrid Michaelson is writing the music and lyrics, and This Is Us writer Bekah Brunstetter is writing the book.
“When I was approached about working on Notebook, I had to excuse myself and go to the bathroom and cry and come back into the meeting,” Ingrid previously said in a statement. “I have loved the movie and the story for so many years now that the idea of turning it into a musical overwhelmed me. The concept of unending devotion and love wrapped up in memory and family is something very close to my own personal life… I cannot wait for the world to hear these characters come to life in a musical way.”
This is going to be GOOD!
