"You read that right. Playwright and This Is Us producer Bekah Brunstetter will be writing the adaptation, with artist Ingrid Michaelson handling music and lyrics.

"I'm thrilled to work with Bekah, Ingrid and our whole team on bringing this beloved story to the stage!"

We're not sure if Ryan Gosling is going to be taking part but we can only hope.

Speaking about the decision to turn the novel into a musical, Bekah said: "When I first heard about The Notebook potentially being turned into a musical, I was instantly drawn to the idea.

"The story hits home for me in two big ways: it takes place in my home state of North Carolina, and Alzheimer's runs deep in my family."

She continued: "I was sent a few songs Ingrid had already written for it, and that week, I spent my drives to and from work car-listening, memorizing, imagining the story unfold with music, imagining how I might layer worlds, dramatize memory, and before I even knew that I had to write the book for this, it was already starting to happen in my head.

"The older you get, it seems, the more invisible you become, and yet, you have so much to say - so putting an older couple at the forefront of a musical is thrilling to me.

"I am so excited to continue collaborating with Ingrid on bringing this beautiful story to life in a new way."
