So now with the Tonys done it's a bit easier to start speculating what theaters will be open after the summer. And what will fill those open theaters.

Definite:
Vivian Beaumont
Nederlander
Palace
Winter Garden

Possible: (in order of likelihood)
Broadway
St. James
Jacobs
Helen Hayes
Richard Rodgers

And what's still looking for a theater? Dames at Sea still shooting for 2014? Honeymoon in Vegas in the fall or spring? Can Finding Neverland make the fall? Will Titanic make the fall if a theater opens up or was that just an excuse? My Fair Lady at the Palace? King Kong at the Broadway? Bodyguard at the Marquis? Allegiance? Flashdance? Killer Joe? Disgraced? Rebecca????

I'm confident After Midnight will still be open come the Fall as long as they can bring in a star.
A Chorus Line played its final Broadway performance on August 17, 2008. The tour played its final performance on August 21, 2011. A new non-equity tour started in October 2012 played its final performance on March 23, 2013.

At the Tonys I believed they played a promotion for the "Illusionists" at the Marquis Theatre. Googled and found little info.

Given its success in London, I wouldn't be surprised if Wolf Hall and Bring up the Bodies transfers in the Spring.

Thanks for the info gstrus2. I googled it and found more info. Ticketmaster confirms it is coming. Any other new promos at the Tonys?

Anyone heard any news on Dames at Sea lately?

Last piece I saw was an interview with Laura Osnes. She said that it was looking for a theatre for this fall.

Tony Danza and Rob McClure had a clip about Honeymoon in Vegas coming in, so I'm glad that is still coming!

Jonwo, those productions are probably going to come over in Fall 2015.

I'm surprised the RSC would wait until late next year unless it's due to cast availability since I imagine they'll want to bring over the cast especially Ben Miles. I think it would be a hit on Broadway but I'm not sure how popular the books are in the US.

It's playing at the Aldywch Theatre in London which is owned by Nederlander so I wouldn't be surprised if it ends up at the Brooks Atkinson or the Rodgers although I think the Schoenfeld would be great since that was the theatre where the RSC's Nicholas Nickleby played.

Dessie is correct on all counts except one.
"The Spectacle has, indeed, an emotional attraction of its own, but, of all the parts, it is the least artistic, and connected least with the art of poetry. For the power of Tragedy, we may be sure, is felt even apart from representation and actors. Besides, the production of spectacular effects depends more on the art of the stage machinist than on that of the poet."

That's what I was told by someone related to RSC's very small NY office. I'm trying to find US sales figures for the two books, but I'm really only finding UK numbers. I know that they were on a lot of US publications top ten yearly lists, but that doesn't always equate with high popularity.

Finding Neverland closes September 28 at ART in Boston. Is Harvey aiming to bring to Broadway in Fall or in Spring?

I'd never read the books but saw both plays and they were thrilling, if Twelfth Night/Richard III can be a hit then Wolf Hall/Bring up the Bodies shouldn't have problems. It will appeal to that sort of audience who would also have seen stuff like Coast of Utopia.

So that would mean... Honeymoon in Vegas at the Atkinson (because someone here is insisting that)? King Kong at the Broadway or Palace? Disgraced at the Lyceum? Finding Neverland at whatever opens up or possibly the Broadway or Palace?

So that would mean you aren't talking about only the fall, but the spring as well. Since the Marquis is booked for the fall. Makes sense since Finding Neverland and King Kong don't seem ready for the fall.

Is Finding Neverland going to be a big show like it was planned to in London?

Is King Kong still happening? I haven't heard anything about it in a long time.
Some people can get a thrill, knitting sweaters and sitting still. That's okay for some people, who don't know they're alive!
