2018 Theater Challenge

Posting this a little early so I don't forget to do it later!

When?

• January 1, 2018 - December 31, 2018 in your time zone.

What sorts of books?

• Scripts, books made into plays or musicals, movies that were made into musicals, operas/operettas (and their librettos), etc. - if it happens live on a stage and involves spoken/sung words, it probably works. Even books ABOUT stage shows - fiction or non-fiction (for instance, a mystery involving a summer stock actor or a book about the Passion Play at Oberammergau). Explain why your release fits the challenge in your post.

• Thanks to solittletime for reminding me about radio plays and full-cast audiobooks, which also count.

• These should be actual books, of the sort that would normally have an ISBN (unless it pre-dates ISBNs), not souvenir programs. Physical audiobooks do qualify.

What kinds of releases?

• Any sort of release: controlled, wild, charity, OBCZ, LFL, RABCK, whatever.

• Multi-challenge and themed releases welcome. Release photos are always fun.

What else?

• Post releases here with titles and links. Adding a description and/or explanation makes it more interesting.

• REMEMBER: many books that work for this challenge also qualify for Davros-10's TV series challenge ( 2018 edition - http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/548134 ) and msrubble's movie challenge ( 2018 version - https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/548493 ). If someone has called a book a "classic" there's a good chance someone has done a movie, TV, or stage version of it.

• For reference, there are links to earlier versions of this challenge:

2017 - http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/537473
2016 - http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/526030

• If you have questions, please ask. If I don't reply here, it never hurts to PM me.

According to Les Standiford's The Man Who Invented Christmas, it was common practice during the Victorian era - copyright being a lot weaker then - for popular novels to be turned into (unauthorized) stage versions: Dickens's A Christmas Carol, Nicholas Nickleby, The Pickwick Papers, Oliver Twist, The Cricket in the Hearth, The Chimes, and Martin Chuzzlewit were all staged during his lifetime...and undoubtedly others, but those are the ones mentioned in the text.
