I was watching a video of Rick Elice's speech at Celia Keenan-Bolger's final performance of Peter And The Starcatcher, and he says that she's leaving the cast to go do The Glass Menagerie, opening on Broadway in the spring. I knew she was doing it at A.R.T. but I hadn't heard anything announced about a transfer. Was he making a joke, or is this news?

I noticed that while watching the video too. I always figured it would transfer in the spring because of the cast the have attached. I think the A.R.T. run is selling well, and I'm really hoping for the transfer since I don't know if I'll be able to make it to Boston.

Probably.

(And, my God, I forgot Quinto was in this!)

It wouldn't be that shocking with Zachary Quinto and Cherry Jones being in the cast.

And besides, it's only been a little under three years since Roundabout did the show Off-Broadway.

It needs to come to B'way like ASAP. That's a cast I would pay top dollar for!

The last production (with Judith Ivey) was so good I said I'd swear off seeing the play for a while. But if it came back with Cherry I might reverse that plan.

Tiffany is right off his win for ONCE, so I imagine he has some pull in getting it produced.

Thinking about the ART and the way they've had a great showing on transfers (assuming either/both Pippin and Menagerie transfer) and wondering: Is the ART considered a PRODUCER for the b'way or just the original producer?

In either case, what kind of money are they likely to see from this? Any thoughts are appreciated.

Typically when a production transfers from a regional theatre that regional company will be listed as one of the producers. As far as what kind of money they see, that would depend on their contract with whatever other producers come on board and how many points/shares that company ultimately gets so it would be different for every production.

This show just has never really done it for me. I am not a fan of it...but this cast will definitely get me to attend.

I really hope it does. It's one of my favorite plays, and Cherry Jones is one of my favorite actresses.
