MGM Pursues Screen to Stage Projects

Under the MGM On Stage label, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios Inc. is pursing a plan to bring a slate of plays to theaters, projects for the stage adapted from movies. Among them are “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels” (opening soon in L.A.), a stage adaptation of “Midnight Cowboy” that is playing at the Edinburgh Festival, a version of “Priscilla, Queen of the Desert” opening in Australia this fall, a stage edition of “Legally Blonde” opening in San Francisco in February, and a version of Carl Reiner’s 1970 film, “Where’s Poppa“.
