Assuming (very hopefully) sideshow moves into the st. James, what is going to be happening at the following theaters? This west coaster is asking for your help:

Winter garden
Marquis
Nederlander
The Palace

I am blind and I do receive the NY Times and other city papers via phone, but I don't get the advertisements so I don't know about any splashy, double-paged ads telling me what's coming into the above theaters, any help out there would be appreciated!

The Marquis will be THE ILLUSIONISTS, a magic show, for the holiday months.

The Palace has AN AMERICAN IN PARIS booked in the spring, but nothing until then as of now.
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.

The Nederlander is being held for Hunchback. There might be a Holiday engagement in there, but the next open run will be Hunchback.

I'm terrified that CATS will find some way to return to the Winter Garden.

Not Hunchback.
"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."

Might "Beautiful" move to a larger house?

^ Why would they? The Sondheim is just right for them, and I'm sure Roundabout is happy with the grosses as their landlord.

Times just mentioned Beautiful would be doing even better biz if it had more seats.

I believe Finding Neverland is going into the Winter Garden.

I've heard rumors of On Your Feet! (The Gloria Estefan musical) eyeing the Nederlander, although it won't be till Fall 2015 either.

Yeah, the Beaumont usually does a fall show. It was rumored that Love Letters would be renting it, but we haven't heard about that in awhile.

I bet the Palace will be empty until spring, but I have nothing to base that on.

It would be funny if Rocky's premature closing brings us the second coming of Cats @The Winter Garden.

I was looking at broadwaybox for what discounts are being offered for shows into this autumn, and they have pages for both Love Letters and King Kong, though both pages don't have much info and say tickets are not yet on sale for these events - so they may just be pages to attract traffic from search results

I also looked on broadwaybox and I'm guessing for some shows they include a target theatre for the show. Some of them are:

Love Letters - Beaumont
King Kong - Foxwoods (now Lyric)
Noises Off! - American Airlines
The County House - Friedman

I'd love it if "A Christmas Story" took The Palace for the holiday season. It's probably one of the best holiday themed shows to hit broadway. I adore it.

For a show to open this fall, I feel like it would need to already been announced or in the casting process. And none of those are. So who knows. It looks like a bleak winter.

Does this leave open the possibility of Side Show at Lincoln Center, where many posters more knowledgeable than I seemed to feel it would have a better fit?

I dont think Side Show will go to Lincoln Center. My understanding is that Jordan Roth, who runs Jujamcyn Theatres, wants it for the St James, which is the only Jujamcyn house available, and Roth is likely very involved in putting together the producers/investors for the transfer....I doubt he would let it slip away to the Beaumont
