Stage Musical Adaptations of Movies

A Listmania! list by DMc33 "Keepin' it real since 1980" (Boston,MA)
The list author says: "I'm writing a presentation on the screen to stage adapation, a popular Broadway trend of the past decade or so. These consist (mostly) of films made from original screenplays (not adaptations of books or plays) adapted for the stage and given musical numbers to support the storyline. I don't include Disney musicals on this last as most were based on Fairy Tales or folklore, not an original screenplay,these include Mary Poppins, The Lion King, Tarzan, The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast. Am I missing any that have been actually on stage?"
