Dreamcast: Eight Pairs of Stars Who Could Headline Moonst...

The Oscar-winning John Patrick Shanley movie Moonstruck was released 30 years ago on December 18, 1987. With all the movie-to-musical adaptations that have happened or are in the works, it seems wild that Moonstruck hasn’t gotten the musical treatment yet. A big “Snap Out Of It” musical number to end Act One? Come on! Below, we imagine eight pairs of stage stars who could shine as Loretta Castorini & Ronny Cammareri in our imagined Moonstruck musical. (It should be noted in our dream, Patti LuPone would obvi. play the Oscar-winning role of Rose Castorini.)
