Think about this: you order tickets for a brand new musical by Lin-Manuel Miranda. You arrive to the theater and look forward to the opening quantity. The story is a romantic one a few couple, Alana and Marko, that comes collectively regardless of being from opposing sides of a longtime warfare. They get married and have a baby, Hazel. And oh yeah, they’re aliens they usually’re on the run from teams and mercenaries that see them as traitors. It’s a musical based mostly on Saga by author Brian K. Vaughan and artist Fiona Staples, and no, the concept of Miranda adapting the comedian for the stage isn’t within the works, however sure, it will be fully excellent.
Talking with Vulture (by way of io9) concerning the subsequent arc of the comedian, Vaughan and Staples joked they’d be right down to have Miranda translate the story right into a musical. And whereas in addition they talked about they don’t presently have any plans to adapt the story, given the weighty themes, the fantastical parts, and the unbelievable visuals, it’s not laborious to think about this beautiful comedian collection coming alive on the display…or the stage.
Vaughan informed Vulture, “We’ve by no means spoken with Mr. Miranda, however seeing Hamilton on stage was one of many biggest experiences of my inventive life, and it’s a ridiculous honor to know he reads our work. I do know I stated we’re not pursuing variations, but when Lin-Manuel ever desires to mount a Saga musical, it’s all his, wouldn’t you say, Fiona?”
Staples is in too, and so are we. Would Mendacity Cat have a rap? Would Prince Robotic IV’s songs have a staticky edge? And simply think about the musical arc for Gwendolyn. Adapting it will be a problem, to make certain, however after Hamilton, I’m totally aboard the Miranda belief prepare. And he’s a fan of the comedian, as he informed the New York Times.
