Broadway is on a quest to turn every movie you love and hold dear in your heart into a musical whether it deserves to become a musical or not. It’s going to happen. The quicker you learn to accept it, the quicker you can get on with your life. So brace yourself because Freddy vs. Jason is going to become Versus!: A Freddy and Jason Musical. Airplane! is going to be turned into a musical called Airplane!! with one extra exclamation point because that’s what Broadway does. If Broadway can’t resist remaking movies into musicals, the least they can do is pick something that deserves such treatment. The Wild Detectives bookstore is starting its own memo to the Great White Way by staging its own series of musical treatments called “Movies That Should Be Musicals.” The series kicks off at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 12, at Fearing’s Restaurant (2121 McKinney Ave.) with a musical rendition of director Penny Marshall’s A League of Their Own, the 1992 dramatic comedy based on the story of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball Association that starred Geena Davis and Tom Hanks. Tickets are $15 at liveoaksessions.eventbrite.com.
