I mentioned in the Newsies thread, but it'd probably get lost as the discussion re: tickets, reviews, etc. get posted.

But could DAMES AT SEA (Announced for 2014) or FORUM (which is planning for Spring) be moving into the Nederlander?

I believe Fiddler was coming in the 2015-2016 season.

No, FIDDLER didn't announce a theatre, but I think Danny Birstein, who was announced as being courted for Tevye is tied up with Cabaret through January.

No, I was talking about FIDDLER, but posted at the same time as the others.

Disney DID workshop a Muppets musical recently, right?

The Nederlander is a good size for a mid-size musical and I could see either Dames at Sea or Forum or perhaps even Can Can fitting in. Before Rent it's location so far south was considered a major factor in the theatre being a flop house. My guess is with a decent number of theatres opening up it may not get booked until the spring.

FORUM... isn't coming in until the spring. I can't see the Nederlander sitting dark all fall.

With its positive Times review, I wonder if SIDE SHOW will be part of the equation for this coming season.
Tonya Pinkins: Then we had a "Lot's Wife" last June that was my personal favorite. I'm still trying to get them to let me sing it at some performance where we get to sing an excerpt that's gone.
Tony Kushner: You can sing it at my funeral.

If the producers of Fun Home are smart, they'll wait for Circle in the Square after The River closes. It would get swallowed up in the Nederlander.

I think Fun Home could work well in the Booth after Elephant Man.

Well if Disney wants to keep it, and it wouldn't be book until 2015 anyway, Hunchback is premiering late this year/early next year.

I'm wondering if "Allegiance", is looking. I *think* a Nederlander House is what they were looking for after the San Diego run. Also, I'm wondering if "Dames at Sea", "Forum", possibly "Side Show" (although I doubt it), but what about "Finding Neverland" is looking for houses if the Boston/A.R.T. run goes well, it could open December/January.

There is no way Newsies would close so suddenly without them having something lined up. I would assume something is going to be announced soon.

Keep in mind: Disney doesn't necessarily need the Nederlander specifically if they want to keep a third show open on Broadway. They have a good relationship with the Nederlander Org. and very well may be looking at one of their bigger theatres (the Palace and Marquis both could surely be open in the spring.)
Words don't deserve that kind of malarkey. They're innocent, neutral, precise, standing for this, describing that, meaning the other, so if you look after them you can build bridges across incomprehension and chaos. But when they get their corners knocked off, they're no good anymore…I don't think writers are sacred, but words are. They deserve respect. If you get the right ones in the right order, you can nudge the world a little.

Although mum was the word on the specific show, I am aware that Newsies was closing to make way for a new show in the fall. At least thats what I was told about a month or so ago.

I wouldn't be surprised if it's Side Show considering the recent transfers of Kennedy Center's Follies and Ragtime. If Newsies is closing in August, and Side Show closes at KC on 7/13, it could still load in and start previews before the end of the fall. Follies announced their transfer a few days before it closed at KC and within 2 months was able to start previews at the Marquis.

FOLLIES
Closed @ Kennedy Center: 6/19/11
Previews on Broadway: 8/7/11
Opened on Broadway: 9/12/11

RAGTIME:
Closed @ Kennedy Center: 5/17/09
Previews on Broadway: 10/23/09
Opened on Broadway: 11/15/09

I hope it's Nerds. The concert version at 54 Below was terrific. I know try are waiting for a theatre.
Apparently there are a bunch of shows waiting for theatres.
A great problem for Broadway to have.

A bit off topic. I hear Rock Of Ages is closing in January
