The film went on to become a major commercial hit, grossing $142 million worldwide and earning 11 Oscar nominations. The acclaimed film lives on as its legacy and popularity grow. This led to an original stage musical being brought to Broadway in 2005, the success of the stage adaptation sparked a revival in 2015, and discussions about a film version will surface in 2018.
