BroadwayWorld is Most Thankful For: Broadway Bound in 2014?- HONEYMOON IN VEGAS
Thanksgiving might be over, but that doesn't mean that there isn't anything left to be thankful for this year! Earlier this week, BroadwayWorld brought you entries from over 60 of Broadway's biggest stars on what they are counting their blessings for (CLICK HERE to check out the full list), but now we turn the tables and share with you the reasons why we are thankful this holiday season.
The hit run of HONEYMOON IN VEGAS, which opened at Paper Mill Playhouse to a great set of reviews, has already played its final performance in New Jersey, but is Broadway next? Most-likely. The show has been billed as 'Broadway-Bound' since day one, and the rave reviews from New York's critics make it a safe bet that we'll see it on the Great White Way, sooner rather than later. In fact, a recent report by the New York Post's Michael Riedel, he notes that producer Roy Gabay may have a tough time finding a Broadway house to transfer his hit musical. Says a theater owner, "Nobody saw this one coming. We'd love to have it, but we have nothing available."
We're keeping our fingers crossed for a Broadway transfer!
Honeymoon in Vegas starred television, screen and stage icon Tony Danza (Who's the Boss?, Taxi, The Producers, A View From The Bridge, The Iceman Cometh) as Tommy Korman, a widowed and unscrupulous gambler looking for another shot at love. Leading the company were Tony nominee Rob McClure (Chaplin) as Jack Singer, Brynn O'Malley (Annie) as Betsy Nolan, Tony nominee Nancy Opel(Memphis, Urinetown) as Bea Singer, Matthew Saldivar (Peter and the Starcatcher) as Johnny Sandwich and David Josefsberg (Wedding Singer) as Tony Rocky/Roy Bacon.
