What shows do you miss the most and wish would have a revival soon. For me, it's honestly Hairspray. Sorry but I'm obsessed with the music and the movie is just awful. Plus I never got to see this show live . Others for me would be Catch Me If You Can, Anything Goes, and probably Guys and Dolls. What about you guys?

Into the Woods
RENT
On the Twentieth Century (I was totally banking on Chenoweth bringing this back, but she seems more interested in scheduling EVERYTHING ELSE ON THE PLANET besides this)
Sweeney Todd (I'm determined to see this musical live if it kills me)

Rent
Into the Woods
Gypsy (I know it's been revived twice in the past 10 years, but I love it)
Memphis (No hate, please. I really enjoyed this one.)
Next to Normal
Some people can get a thrill, knitting sweaters and sitting still. That's okay for some people, who don't know they're alive!

Next To Normal - Original Off-Broadway Cast
Rent - Original Broadway Cast
Bonnie and Clyde


I have never seen NTN or Bonnie and Clyde anywhere, and I would give anything to go back in time to see the Original Broadway Cast of Rent in 1996. I was only 10, so not exactly appropriate at the time.

I'd love to see a revival of Barnum. Such a fantastic score, fun characters and a good story. Would make another good circus show to run alongside Pippin.

I'll second both On the Twentieth Century and Barnum. I'm going through a bit of a Cy Coleman phase right now and I just can't get enough of those scores. It's a shame Kristin's not focusing on it as actively as she was before. I keep fantasizing about seeing Carol Burnett in the Imogene Coca role. "Repent" is practically dying to be sung by her.

I really don't want to see anything come back in revivals, because in all likelihood, they're going to mucked up in some way and ruined. Now, if they could be revived just the way they were, that would be another story. I'd love to see Milk and Honey, Tenderloin, The Happiest Girl in the World, The Student Gypsy, The Gay Life, Tovarich, Sophie, Ben Franklin in Paris, so many others... but only the way they were!

Two shows I'd love to see come back with their original staging are City of Angels and The Secret Garden. City of Angels was such a unique show with amazing black and white vs. color sets and the whole thing just flowed so well and was entertaining as hell. Incredible score, too.

The Secret Garden had one of the most beautiful sets I think I've ever seen, I'll never forget the ending of Act 1 when the door "draws" itself with light and Mary opens it. And the finale when a never ending series of scrims drop down revealing the garden. Wow. Lily's Eyes and Hold On are two of my favorite bway tunes, too.

Tommy was pretty bad ass too.

Oh yeah! Yank.

The Light in the Piazza needs to come back when I'm in my 20's so that I can play Clara.

...oh, that's not what you meant?
(In all seriousness, I think Titanic should come back for real, not just a one night thing).

A Streetcar Named Desire with Nina Arianda -- in about 5 years -- potentially an ideal Blanche.

Allegro is beautiful and deserves to work, I think it could. Maybe if someone like Craig Lucas would work on the book.
I'll always take a Gypsy revival.

I'm a big believer in if you aren't bringing something new to a piece, don't revive it. That can all be in the casting but it's very tricky. That's why I'm a little bummed Alan Cumming is playing the Emcee. I love his performance, and the beauty of theater is he can change it every time, but why cast the same actor? Why remount the same staging? Kander and Ebb have such a rich catalogue.
remount the same staging
