Empire Records is being made into a musical

posted by Amber Miller - 


Is it too early to line up to buy tickets?

Empire Records - the CLASSIC 90's movie about a record store and trying to keep it from being bought out by a large company - is being adapted into a Broadway musical slated for a 2020 premiere.

The original writer of the film, Carol Heikkinen will be involved (which is always a good sign) along with with Zoe Sarnak, who will oversee music and lyrics.

That is a big undertaking - the film embraced SO MANY great 90's songs - remember this soundtrack?
