La La Land is packing its bags and heading to Broadway!

Lionsgate and producer Marc Platt announced on Tuesday that the beloved 2016 musical, written and directed by Damien Chazelle, is set to be adapted for the Great White Way.

The film won six Oscars at the 89th Academy Awards, including Best Actress, Best Director, Best Score and Best Song.
