I would LOVE to see Redhead or Applause revived, but really don't think either will ever happen.

The Story of My Life, but Off-Broadway. it's way too intimate of a show for Broadway.

It wasn't a great show, but I would love, love, love to see The Life again.

Anmiller, I don't think it will happen for a long, long time, but I believe somewhere down the road, Caroline, or Change will make a comeback. Maybe at a subscription house in a small theater. But it seems like one of those shows that someone will love too much not to take a chance on at some point. I mean...I hope this to be the case because it's the one show I still kick myself for missing.

Ballroom
Do I Hear a Waltz? (please, at least an Encores! production! I'm dying to hear this score.)
Mack and Mabel (I still think this could work with the right casting and the changes to the book that are needed.)

"Angels In America"

This WAS revived. Like, two years ago. It's a Pulitzer Prize-winning, beloved piece of contemporary theatre. Of course it'll be revived again.

Let me third MACK & MABEL. So sad Jane Krakowski never got to play the role on Broadway like she was rumored to at one point.
SEESAW.
GRAND HOTEL (not sure about this one, maybe it'll be revived on Broadway some day, but it's not looking likely).
ANYONE CAN WHISTLE.

Add "Anyone Can Whistle" to my wish list (that Encores production should have transferred)
and Grand Hotel-which I never got to see

Dreaming, how awesome would it have been if Donna Murphy had played the role on Broadway?

I second Grand Hotel.
When I see the phrase "the ____ estate", I imagine a vast mansion in the country full of monocled men and high-collared women receiving letters about productions across the country and doing spit-takes at whatever they contain. -Kad

I third Grand Hotel, with the original staging.

I'd also really love to see a full-scale revival of The Secret Garden or Sunset Boulevard.

APPLAUSE (with Sheryl Lee Ralph) and MACK AND MABEL (yes, with Jane Krakowski) were both revised by LA's REPRISE before its demise.

Sorry, because I love her, too, but Krakowski was not great as Mable. She sang it like a dancer counting 8s. (Not that the show would have worked anyway; the book still has the same problem: Mack and Mabel spend Act II going in opposite directions.)

Ralph was quite charming in APPLAUSE, though I don't know that she has the necessary charisma.

Rent. ( I am aware of the Off-Broadway revival. I would like to see a revival on Broadway with staging very similar to the original. )
Some people can get a thrill, knitting sweaters and sitting still. That's okay for some people, who don't know they're alive!

MARY POPPINS never should have closed

I am praying and hoping the MISS SAIGON revival in London makes it to Broadway.
