It's nice for musicals like this and Floyd Collins to be getting a Broadway production after years of growing fondness from off-broadway runs.

I remember hearing that the the Tick Tick Boom from DC was transferring, is that still happening ? That musical would also fit that category. 


Hesione Hushabye thinks it tastes like ashes.

He is going to sell a lot of tickets and disappoint a lot of people if he starts losing his voice and calling out. I’m basing this concern on his performance in the Les Mis reunion concert. Hopefully he’s been working hard and has improved since then.

This production’ll be tough to live up to the gold standard that is the 2021 virtual production w/Nasia Thomas and Nicholas Edwards, but it will have no problem selling tix as long as Jonas takes care of himself.

Assuming the director part of the rumor is true, 2024-25 will be a banner season for Michael Arden. He has worked / will work on:

  • Ben Platt’s concert residency
  • Maybe Happy Ending
  • The Last Five Years

… plus regional tryouts of The Queen of Versailles (in Boston) and The Preacher’s Wife (in Atlanta), both of which may end up on Broadway this season as well. And Parade is launching its second national tour in January!

He better find some time to eat and sleep. :)

Any ideas of dates? Feels like it must be happening soon if they are going to announce so early? 


"You can't overrate Bernadette Peters. She is such a genius. There's a moment in "Too Many Mornings" and Bernadette doing 'I wore green the last time' - It's a voice that is just already given up - it is so sorrowful. Tragic. You can see from that moment the show is going to be headed into such dark territory and it hinges on this tiny throwaway moment of the voice." - Ben Brantley (2022) "Bernadette's whole, stunning performance [as Rose in Gypsy] galvanized the actors capable of letting loose with her. Bernadette's Rose did take its rightful place, but too late, and unseen by too many who should have seen it" Arthur Laurents (2009) "Sondheim's own favorite star performances?

lol another one the oracle called correctly. It’s kinda getting scary at this point. If he was correct on venue, it’s the Lunt, but that seems massive for this show.

Maybe a short summer fill before DEATH BECOMES HER starts? They must have god a good deal because the theatre would almost certainly remain empty otherwise.

I think the idea is that, by going into a bigger theatre, they can do a shorter run. A 6-week run at the Lunt has as many tickets as a 15-week run at the Hayes. Everything I know about this just screams "commercial viability above all else." A tiny production with a massive star in a big theatre for an extremely limited run will get that for you.

Spring 2025? Too far away to feel any hype!!

This is very different singing than Les Miz. I think this will fit him much more naturally. I thought he was quite good in H2$ a while back

Adding Adrienne Warren into the already extremely rich mix for next year’s Best Actress/Musical race means that the Tonys are DEFINITELY trying to kill us all.

ATG is one of the producers, so the Hudson seems like the strongest possibility after Mattress closes, unless one of the long-running shows at a Jujamcyn theatre is closing by the end of the year.

Maybe we should shut down BroadwayWorld for the summer to give everyone the chance to step out of doors because it’s actually lunacy at this point. lol

Not my favorite show (I much prefer Kathy’s songs to Jamie’s), but it’s about time this made it to Broadway. I’m genuinely surprised it took this long: simple set, small orchestra, two-hander primed for the right kind of stunt casting; all seem ideal for Broadway producers looking to make an easy buck. And it’s well-loved in the theater community.

Yeah, if I were an investor, I’d put money into this in a heartbeat.

How big is Nick Jonas right now? I remember the grosses for how to succeed were surprisingly flat but he could be bigger now and there is more buzz opening a new show than being a replacement of course. If Nick Jonas is a genuine name I’d also bet it’ll be a success.

Jonas has definitely become a bigger name since How to Succeed (which was somehow over 12 years ago already…).
