Is Turning Old TV Shows Into Stage Plays Really A Workable Idea?

“In theatre, there’s typically somewhere between 90 minutes to two and a half hours to establish characters, take them through a plot and wrap up their story. … A successful television series operates under a different model: most episodes are only between 30 and 60 minutes, but the lives and stories of the characters can go on for years, sometimes adding up to hundreds of hours.” Howard Sherman looks at some upcoming attempts to bridge this gap.
