In an interview on La La Land, producer Marc Platt told E Online at the Oscars red carpet, "If we can find something unique for the live stage experience the way [director Damien Chazelle] and his team did for the cinematic experience, I'll be there." He added, "Let us get through tonight and then we may be able to figure it out."

Platt has earlier also produced Broadway musicals. He has produced Three Days of Rain, that starred Julia Roberts which was her Broadway debut. It also starred Bradley Cooper and Paul Rudd. Platt has also produced Wicked.
