GOOD! Let it play at the most uncomfortable theater on broadway until the end of time and let that glorious Winter Garden get some fresh life with a GOOD show!

The fanboy in me is hoping that this is to make room for a CATS revival at the Winter Garden.

Are they going to renovate the WG?

I doubt it needs much work since they did a renovation about 12 years ago.

Wait, there's a chance I may be able to venture into the Winter Garden again, and sometime soon?!?

I fully support a Cats revival at the Winter Garden. Let's make it happen!

Does this mean Rebecca will open up in the Winter Garden? It makes perfect sense.


Or not.

I can't stand the stage version - though the movie is a guilty pleasure - but if it's still pulling in big crowds, why not? With the state of the world today, Broadway needs to have one straight-out good time show.

My guess for the Winter Garden is 'The Bodyguard' or that Spice Girls musical, if it ever finds its way over.

Les Miserables is going to a Shubert theatre. Perhaps the Winter Garden?

I had a feeling this would happen, clearly the Shuberts wanted the Winter Garden for new musicals and Mamma Mia! was doing okay but not well enough to justify staying at such a big theatres but not bad enough to close. Weird that it has moved to smaller theatres in both London and Broadway in the space of a year.

^That could be. It's defiantly large enough to house Les Mis.

This would be a really weird fit in the Winter Garden. The stage for the new Les Miserables tour is extremely narrow.

I don't think they'll waste the Winter Garden on Les Mis. It's a third revival, and the last one fit into the Broadhurst. My guess is it'll go in the Schoenfeld.

The other option for Les Mis is the Imperial as I imagine Nice Work will close when Broderick leaves.

Moving the show to a smaller theatre will extend the shows life by a few years but it'll be weird not seeing it at the Winter Garden. I imagine they'll use one of the tour sets rather than build a new set for the Broadhurst.

Rocky has been mooted in the NYT which is possible as it was well received in Hamburg,

'I don't think they'll waste the Winter Garden on Les Mis. It's a third revival, and the last one fit into the Broadhurst. My guess is it'll go in the Schoenfeld.'

I think the Shuberts will want to have it free for plays that could be hits, The Audience has been rumoured for the Spring so I could it go there although it could easily go to the Longacre or Cort.

^Second revival. I'm guessing the Imperial.
What a colossal piece of crap! It'll probably run for years.

Les Mis is a short run, apparently. Winter Garden might make sense because it's a big house.

'Rebecca' (if it will ever happen) and the 'Les Mis' revival were my guesses for the next show at the Winter Garden. The Broadhurst is interesting choice for 'Mamma Mia' to move to.

Anyone else think they are going to want a bigger name show/revival to go into the Winter Garden? How about "My Fair Lady"?

Les Miz is definitely going into the Imperial
