In the Spring I am thinking of hitting New York to see the new shows, then would like to see something in California, I am aware of the main theatres in Los Angeles (Pantanges and Ahmanson) and San Francisco (Golden Gate, Curran and the Orpheum), but what other theatres are worth checking out please?
- PARAMOUR Moving Theaters, Future Up in the Air Dec 1

Didn't one of the last tenants (Spider-Man), when closing saying it was going to relocate? What happened there?
With Potter announced so quickly as soon as Paramour put their closing notice out, ATG invoked the stop clause.

Also David Stone who owns the rights and also making millions from Wicked, wouldn't be concerned with making a very minute profit in the West End, not really worth his hassle, so he won't release the rights.
So what I think will happen is in 8-15 years time he will allow somewhere mentioned above perform it in London for the first time, with an eye on a transfer for the first Broadway revival.

As I said earlier in the thread and didn't get an answer, but has Hamilton recouped? I be surprised if it hasn't, but having read a press release to say it has.

Chicago didn't either get best musical.
Wicked could be round for a long time, as another poster said it could move to another theatre such as the Neil Simon when it needs to. Also so they could stunt cast the 2 female leading roles. You can see that the Hamilton effect has slightly hit the box office, will the box office get hit again once Frozen opens.

Smaxie said: "It was great in the theatre. Absolutely great. The favorite of all of the Roses I've seen (Lansbury, Daly, Peters, Buckley and Lupone). Her performance was not modulated for the TV cameras, and it doesn't have the same magic. Not sure who else they would bring over, but with an American cast surrounding her, I wouldn't be so quick to snub it.
Hah, I am no means a Sondheim fan, but saw this in Chichester

Seen both Groundhog Day and Come From Away and both are excellent.
Come From Away is the funniest new musical since Mormon.

The producers done the same thing in London and that was to offer cheap preview tickets, hence building up a fan base and positive word of mouth, it see,s to have worked.
I am a one of a kind, the only person that didn't love it, including yours truly.

Should the British only casts Brits, when Americans take British roles in the West End?
As for the rest of you, I am sure you will enjoy Michael being out of the swimming pool.

there are literally over 100,000 that meet that requirement. Could you provide a bit of context if you have a serious question?

I have to say I haven't really been trolled on this one...the British are the only ones who can seem to interpret his work now.
Now you're just trolling us, you bloody wanker. Go back to the London board.
That is a great place to start on a theatre debating forum, but then again with posts like that, we know you're not representing the intelligent side of America.

On the thread subject I deliberately put 'Is Stephen Sondheim Overrated?', I could've put instead 'Am I The Only One That Thinks Stephen Sondheim Is Overrated?' I wanted to leave the thread as open as possible to gauge people's reactions, thankfully most of the have been intelligent and thoughtful. I have to say I haven't really been trolled on this one.
Also I didn't use the thread title 'Am I the Only One Who Thinks Stephen Sondheim Is Ov

Mildred Plotka said: "I highly doubt LCT would house a transfer from another theatre company. And this Charity is going for an intimate, feel. Something that would be lost in the Beaumont.
The Lincoln Center transferred the Tony award winning War Horse from the same theatre (National). So it is better to keep this theatre dark for 8 months and many people not getting their pay checks, than to transfer a production that was ready
