Forget the reboot -- we're now in the era of the musical adaptation. After news of a "Full House" musical and "Clueless" musical, "The O.C." is the latest TV show to get the on-stage treatment, according to Variety. The teen drama, which originally ran from 2003 to 2007 on Fox, is being turned into a musical in Los Angeles. The sad news? The show will only run for one night on Aug. 30.

They've even set up a Twitter account to share updates on the special production.
