“One Tree Hill” actress Bethany Joy Galeotti, whose original aspirations were for Broadway musical theater, and music producer/songwriter Ron Aniello have teamed to create a new musical based on Nicholas Sparks’ “The Notebook.”
“It was something that I just wanted to do as my own project,” Galeotti said. “I just thought, ‘Man this will be so great. I just have to get this out. I feel music attached to this story and I have to write this music out and I have to make it into a play. And whether anything happens to it or not, I just have to get it out creatively for myself.’ ”
The duo plan to present a musical workshop of the production in early October in Wilmington.
Maybe you think the show doesn’t have a shot in hell, but Galeotti has started to make her name in the music world (listen to her sing) and as a child vying for Broadway “would always get really close and then never quite make it.”
What do you think? Flop? Hit?
