Nah, Hedwig is a much better production than Les Mis.

Assassins was originally produced Off-Broadway and that still won Best Revival...

That's not how the rules go. Obviously.
If we're not having fun, then why are we doing it? These are DISCUSSION boards, not mutual admiration boards. Discussion only occurs when we are willing to hear what others are thinking, regardless of whether it is alignment to our own thoughts.

I was just wondering, what if a mega flop that closed our of town (like LOLITA MY LOVE or something) opened in a revised form on Broadway, would it be deemed a revival?

That would depend on how widely run it was, and the mood of the Tony committee that decides such things.

Yup, no hard and fast rule.

Most things the Tony nominating committee rules on is done on a case by case basis. (think eligibility of productions, play vs. musical, categorization of performers, etc.)

"Most things the Tony nominating committee rules on is done on a case by case basis."

yet it seems like we've been seeing more cases of shows that have never been on Broadway before, but are still considered revivals. I mean, off the top of my head I think of Assassins, Cinderella, Violet and Hedwig. Maybe I'm ignorant of some contrary examples, but the past few years seems to indicate that Assassins has set an (unofficial) precedent.
