The Savoy in London is a three-tiered space with 1,150 seats. Of the houses in the Shubert portfolio, its closest contemporaries would be the Broadhurst (with 1,156 seats) the Jacobs (with 1,078 seats,) and the Schoenfeld (with 1,079 seats.)
I've heard they're shooting to come in at the beginning of 2018. Casey Nicholaw opens MEAN GIRLS out of town in DC this October so the most logical thing would be for them to begin rehearsals immediately thereafter before he will presumably
A falling out is really the only thing that would explain them ending things so abruptly.
I'm sad to see them go, but the writing's been on the wall that something was going on for a while. They stopped making video content all together after the Tonys this summer, which used to be the foundation of their brand. They kept up the podcast after that (which I loved,) but there would be weird times that didn't seem planned where they'd miss epi

Much like Vogel, it's equally as astonishing that Lynn Nottage has yet to be represented on Broadway either. RUINED not transferring after its staggering and continuously extended run at MTC remains a mystery (something I know Nottage herself has also expressed frustration with.)
Further proof that female writers are still sorely lacking in support when it comes to commercial theater.
To clear up some of the confusion in this thread: the official press release the show put out announcing the recent cast changes made no mention of Daveed or Renee extending their contracts. That information was reportedly separately in the Hollywood Reporter, which cited an independent "source" as having confirmed it. Almost all of the theater publications that announced the cast changes then lopped the information about David and Renee into their stories as if it was also being of
