Amelia Rules! on stage

New Hampshire’s Small Pond Productions will present a new musical based on Jimmy Gownley’s awesome Amelia Rules! next weekend. I am jealous and I hope reviews/photos show up online afterwards (or even closer to the opening day).

I’ve wondered why there’s not more crossover between comics and stage. Certainly, there is some, like Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who writes for both. I just think, despite appearances, the two mediums have a lot in common — both play with language and pacing and do a little with a lot (and often, more with what isn’t there than what is).

But then, I was an English major so it’s in my nature to think about these things.
