I have a strong feeling that this, The Hunger GamesStranger Things, and Harry Potter will all be on Broadway at the same time a few years from now. 


Oh look, a bibu!

Very excited for this magnificent score to make its US debut.  I hope its a hit and transfers to Broadway.

I wasted no time in buying tickets for opening night. I'm looking forward to this.

How much is this revival cut down or rewritten from the four-hour original?

How immersive? That space is super flexible so curious to see how they use it.

It doesn't LOOK immersive at all. At least from the very standard proscenium seating chart. I suppose they could still have the audience start in an alternative location... but I'm not sure where they would do that? 


Jesus saves. I spend.

Has there been any news about the international tour dates and locations? Those details were/are theoretically to be announced in June; I haven't seen an announcement as yet.

For all the hoopla of the space being flexible and whatnot, I've never seen a show there that didn't use just a traditional proscenium staging.

This cast is great, very young, very Chicago. I personally know 3 people in it, so I'm excited to check it out.

Interesting that Gollum isn’t listed. I wonder if that’s the “special guest performer” role that will have some larger industry clout.

My dream casting? Ethan Slater.

If they said “pick someone interesting but not A list,” I’d say cabaret host PJ Adzima. He was in my Off-Bway show in 2016.

Their website lists Tony Bozzuto as playing Gollum
