The Goonies On Broadway 500x681 “The Goonies” Musical

In the news that may be music to the ears of a generation of nostalgic fans, we hear that a stage adaptation of the popular ’80s adventure-comedy The Goonies is presently in the works.

For those born after The Reagan Era, The Goonies starrred Sean Astin, Josh Brolin, Martha Plimpton, and Corey Feldman, as a group of children who embark in search of a pirate’s treasure with the help of an old map. Lensman Richard Donner, who stepped behind the camera for the original film, says he’s in talks to bring the 1985 Steven Spielberg-produced movie to Broadway in the form of a new musical. The story has already been re-written as a song-and-dance stage show. Donner admits, however, that transforming the cinema classic into a musical has been a lengthy process.

“It’s been taking forever, but that long process just got a lot shorter. There’s a great writer/producer called Tim Long who does musicals on The Simpsons which are classic. He just delivered a treatment of The Goonies as a musical, and it’s friggin’ great!” he tells Empire.
