Announcing “The Notebook” on Broadway

I am thrilled to finally be able to confirm the rumors and share some names that will be involved in the Broadway musical adaptation of my bestselling novel, The Notebook!

Bekah Brunstetter (supervising producer for This Is Us) will be writing and developing the production along with the wonderfully talented singer songwriter Ingrid Michaelson, who is writing the music and lyrics. I'm excited to also be producing the show with Grammy winning Kurt Deutsch and Kevin McCollum (behind the Tony winning Best Musicals: Rent, Avenue Q, and Lin-Manuel Miranda’s In The Heights). 

It is incredible to be making a story that is so near and dear to my heart a reality on Broadway and I am humbled that we'll be doing it with such amazingly talented professionals. I can't wait to share more news with you about this as it comes in but until then, you can watch Ingrid making our official announcement on Today Show with Hoda via Twitter.

Read more about the production from the following places online: Entertainment Weekly, Teen Vogue, Billboard, Deadline, and Forbes.

Own The Choice movie today!

Fans that didn't catch the feature film adaptation of Nicholas's best selling novel, The Choice, when it was in theaters (or those that just want to watch it again and again) can now see the movie in the comfort of their own homes! Out now on DVD, Blu-ray and for digital downloading, you get your copy of The Choice through all major online and brick and mortar retailers.

The Choice is now in theaters!

The feature film adaptation of my best selling novel The Choice is now showing in theaters nationwide and the movie's cast, crew and I can't wait for you to see it on the big screen. Directed by the very talented Ross Katz, it stars Benjamin Walker and Teresa Palmer as Travis and Gabby who make some pretty unexpected choices, big and small, that define their lives.

Making this film brought me back to my roots here in North Carolina and I love that Ross treated Wilmington as more than just a backdrop. He made it come alive, almost like a third main character. He was also great with actors. In his hands, it’s immediately obvious why Gabby will risk everything for Travis and at the same time you can see why Travis can’t pull himself away from her.

The Choice may remind you of my very first novel, The Notebook, where a couple comes together and we watch their lives unfold. We see what eventually happens between them and the choices they make. Watching, it seems like the title refers to a choice that occurs early on, but there are plenty of twists and turns that make the story even more memorable, more profound, and I can’t wait to hear what you think about it.

Lastly, I want to extend my gratitude to all of my readers. It’s you and your enthusiasm that make it possible for these stories to come to life on film. And for that I am truly grateful.

Yours,

Spanning a decade and tracing the evolution of a love affair that is ultimately tested by life's most defining events, The Choice features a memorable ensemble of friends and family in Sparks' beloved North Carolina setting, culminating with the question that every couple must ask themselves: how far would you go to keep the hope of love alive?
