Some of you may be familiar with the Fred Astaire/Leslie Caron movie of Daddy Long Legs. There's also a new stage version of Daddy Long Legs that is MUCH closer to the classic romance novel by Jean Webster. Recently I was listening to the new version and I got to wondering what other romance novels have been adapted into musicals?

I can think of:
Gigi - adapted from the romance novella by Colette
Jane Eyre: The Musical (Original 2000 Broadway Cast) - adapted from the gothic romance by Charlotte Bronte

And I know that The Strangely Beautiful Tale of Miss Percy Parker is being adapted as a musical

and a musical adaptation of Jane Austen's Emma is supposed to open on Broadway in 2013

Can anybody think of any other romance novels that have been adapted into musicals?

Thanks Deanna. Once I started snooping around, I found:
Anne of Green Gables
Anne and Gilbert, The Musical
Bend in the Road: Demo Album
I guess Anne of Green Gables is pretty popular! :D
