Hi. I'm currently writing a libretto for a musical. I have 3/4 of it done about and its 36 pages long. So that would make it about 50 pages in the end. I was wondering if 50 pages is a normal length for a libretto or if its too long or too short. Can anyone answer this for me?

i doubt anyone can answer that for you... it's as long as it needs to be... i suggest you get some from the library and see for yourself if there's any average size...

is this a three-act, full-blown musical?...

are you writing/including all the lyrics?...

is it in proper format?...

...all those things will affect the length... sorry i can't be more help, with so little info...

love and hugs, maia
