Today while guest co-hosting Kathie Lee and Hoda, folk-pop singer Ingrid Michaelson made the announcement that she will be penning the score to The Notebook the Musical, based on the book by Nicholas Sparks and which spawned the movie that starred Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams. The book will be written by Bekah Brunstetter, a supervising producer for the hit television show This is Us and playwright of The Cake, which begins previews at the Manhattan Theatre Club on February 12 and opens March 5.

The musical will be produced by Kevin McCollum and Kurt Deutsch along with Sparks and does not yet have an announced production timeline… but besides all that, fans are already casting the talent for their dream The Notebook the Musical cast. Some are even hoping for a role reprisal of Gosling, who starred in the musical La La Land, which won in every category for which it was nominated at the 74th Golden Globe Awards.
(Still) haven’t ever seen The Notebook, but now I’m thinking I’ll just have to wait until the musical for my first go. Any word on whether @RyanGosling is dusting off his tap shoes from La La Land? https://t.co/M6Cvtx3KkA
