Candidate for Adaptation? Promising

EXCERPT:

Andy didn’t hold with the stage–not with any girl he was fond of being on it anyway. And when Andy didn’t like a thing he said so.

He said so now.

‘You aren’t going to do anything of the sort.’

‘Don’t be horrid about it, Andy dear. I’ve got a big chance. Why should you be horrid about it?’

‘I’m not going to argue about it. You don’t go.’



COMMENTS:

The Making of Mac’s, a story about the rise of a quaint Soho restaurant and the conflict and resolution of the people who live in it could be adapted into an interesting musical. It could be written as a period piece of Vaudevillian London. There is a love story, a natural rise and climax, and a loving resolution at the end. In addition, the old waiter, Henry could prove to be an interesting on-stage narrator role.
