Just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale, a tale of two beautiful woman stranded on an island. When Gilligan’s Island debuted in 1964 American’s were divided on whom to fall in love with the most on the show: Ginger, or Mary Ann. The debate still rages on today.
The next big Broadway hit might just involve a trip to an uncharted desert isle with seven eccentric castaways. That’s right, classic ’60s sitcom ‘Gilligan’s Island’ is looking to set sail for Broadway.
