Jonathan Harvey's BeautifulPeople. Bring Sam Barnett, Olivia Coleman, Meera Syal back in their roles, have Luke and Layton involved somehow, anyhow, they were so good! Guest stars too... like the TV series. Musically there's an assortment of musical theatre numbers, Kylie, the Spice Girls, and anything else you want to throw in. It's a beautiful coming of age story with flashbacks, laughs, tears, an obsession with Princess Diana, and a sprinkling of camp. Okay, perhaps more than a sprinkling. Can't see how it would fail.
When An American in Paris came out a few of us on here lamented that the Gershwin's (well George really) didn't really have a solid gold show. AAIP undoubtedly has it moments as do Girl Crazy/ Crazy for you but the feeling remains there's so much great music and songs that something more could be done. When AAIP has been gone 5 years my plan is to mortgage the house, get the rights to this and a new book writer and make my fortune.
Now who wants to help me explain this to Mrs Snow?
