Monopoly’s being turned into a musical

Yes, you read the headline correctly – there are plans to turn the board game Monopoly into a Broadway musical.

Rick Elice—a Tony Award-nominee for Jersey Boys and Peter and the Starcatcher—will pen the book, while Dan Lipton and David Rossmer will work on the score.

Monopoly owners Hasbro are behind the show. It’s thought it will be set in Depression-era Atlantic City, like the US version of the game.

No word yet on casting or when we’ll get to see it.
