As much as I would like this, there is no "eyeing" involved. They are coming to Broadway.

I'd say the Broadway Theatre will be open by the time this hits, so that place would be a no-brainer. Cam Mack is getting lucky with timing and theatre openings.

I'd say either the Broadway or The Winter Garden, I imagine late 2015 or early 2016 would be ideal.

This time I bet they hire an authentic Asian for The Engineer and have a helicopter that creates wind. I detested this show...the most deadly first hour ever. It ran for years to my amazement. But maybe with new direction and choreography, it improved.

I believe the terminology for "authentic Asian" is actually just Asian.

Although, to be fair, the Engineer is supposedly Eurasian (French-Vietnamese), not that they would try to argue that point again.

@evic It was discussed over on the West End board that now, the helicopter does give off wind into the audience. Someone also pointed out that it smells like marijuana during "The Heat is On in Saigon..." and "American Dream".

He won't put Miss Saigon in the Winter Garden. Clearly he's trying to recreate his Broadway monopoly of the 90s and he'll be bringing Cats back to the Winter Garden in 2016.
That's right! Underscore mother-fu@#ers!

It could also go into the Marquis, unless The Bodyguard is still coming and has that theater.

Any word on when the (much needed) renovations for the Marquee will be done?

Where's the new show that will employ the current generation of Asian American talent for the next several years? Why this again?

It would be a Shubert house, Cameroon Mackintosh and the Shuberts have the strongest plutonic civil partnerships on Broadway, wouldn't surprise me if a theatre has already been lined up, Cameron Mackintosh has first pick from the Shubert portfolio.

I love the idea of "Cameroon" having a relationship on Pluto.

I really do hope Eva comes with the show. Apparently, her performance is breathtaking.

I think Eva would be a dead cert to come with the show on Broadway, I imagine Jon Jon Briones will as well.

That's cool. A contact high would help me get through the first act.

The show has already recouped on the West End...

"Miss Saigon has already recouped its investment through advance ticket sales and it doesn’t even open until next week."
