According to Playbill, Matt Bourne's stage production of 'Edward Scissorhands' is still a go and will have a UK premiere in 2005. Will Kemp was originally slated for the title and as of this past summer he mentioned he still hoped to dance it, but nothing has been confirmed yet. As amazing as the movie was, I have to believe that a Bourne stage production will eclipse it and blow everyone away!!

I love "Edward Scissorhands" for its visual flair and its biting satire of American suberbia. This visual quality is by far the strongest element and the dialogue is part of the background rather than a key element in character or plot development. Thus I don't see this transfer to the stage presenting too many problems re text, especially following Matthew Bourne's success with "Play Without Words".
