This will need major stars to sell.

There is exactly ZERO chance they’d do this show without knowing this and planning accordingly.

It’s also a non-profit production with subscribers.

Saw Colton Ryan in concert a few months ago, and he mentioned that this was a dream show and role (or roles -- I remember him talking about both Homer & Floyd)

This is wonderful news.  And I'm glad Landau is back to direct.

Steven Pasquale is in Floyd Collins, thats why he’s not doing JRB’s Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil which has plans for Broadway

I don't think you're understanding how LCT operates. 

But this stage is giant, so I'm so curious how they stage this.

People sign up for memberships. They are not subscribers. Members still have to then decide to purchase tickets to each show.  At a discount yes, but they have not already purchased tickets with their membership.  I live on the West Coast & bought a membership the last two years.  But I haven't purchased tickets to everything they put on.

Camelot closed early despite the large membership.

Camelot was scheduled to close June 25, extended until Sept 3, but closed July 23. It performed its original run. 
Floyd Collins will be fine, and thinking a show of this nature needs huge stars is ridiculous.

If this is true, which part?

FLOYD COLLINS is the type of risky musical that a nonprofit like LCT should be producing. Especially coming on the heels of plays starring Robert Downey Jr. and Steve Carell. It is also a much smaller show than their other recent musical revivals (unless they expand the orchestration or cast size for Broadway) and it likely has no intentions beyond its Broadway run.

CAMELOT was a different beast and I don't imagine anyone within LCT felt that it was a successful endeavor, financially or artistically, despite playing through its super-limited original date. LCT and the creative team also had hopes that CAMELOT would have a U.S. tour, a London production, international productions, and possibly a new film adaptation, similar to SOUTH PACIFIC, KING & I, and MY FAIR LADY.

... I'm not that thrilled that Tina Landau is directing it again...

This show is her baby: she wrote the book and co-wrote the lyrics.

While I'd certainly like to see someone like Michael Arden give his FLOYD COLLINS take, I have no issue with her directing it again. It's been almost 30 years since the original, she's one of the best directors working today, it will be a completely different physical production and staging (by nature of the Beaumont), and people like Scott Ellis, Mark Brokaw, and James Lapine have had success revisiting older works years later (not so much Des McAnuff).

As a fund-raiser in December, the theater is planning a one-night reunion concert of its Tony-winning 2008 revival of “South Pacific.”
 

Holy ****!!! Anyone have any further intel on this, specifically a date?
