Ask any hopeless romantic what their favourite film is and they’re bound to say The Notebook.

The 2004 tearjerker, based on the book by Nicholas Sparks, has acquired a cult following since its release almost 15 years ago.

The Notebook is so romantic that even its stars Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams fell in love during filming.

Fans will be over the moon to learn that the movie is being turned into a Broadway musical.


Songwriter Ingrid Michaelson announced news of the adaptation on the Today show in the US.

She’ll be writing the songs while This Is Us writer and producer Bekah Brunstetter is penning the script.

Nicholas Sparks took to Twitter to say he’s “thrilled” to work with everyone bringing The Notebook to the stage.

The opening date has yet to be announced.
