Gavin Lee sang songs from Hercules during his "Disney on Broadway" concert performance this evening at Epcot. Of course that doesn't mean it'll be coming to Broadway, but it was nice that he included it.
I recently saw the current tour of Hello Dolly at Gammage Auditorium in Tempe Arizona from a seat near the very back of the balcony section, and thankfully I had binoculars with me.
With a capacity of 3017 seats (all of which are used for theatrical productions) Gammage seems quite large compared to most current Broadway theaters in New York (I believe the largest Broadway house in NY has just over 1900 seats).
It got me wondering whether there are any other theater
For anyone in the Phoenix area, I am selling 1 extra ORCH ticket that I have for the Dear Evan Hansen tour at ASU Gammage on Sat Evening 12/1/18 @ 7:30pm. Row 6, center orchestra, one of the best seats in the house. $95. If interest please PM me. Thanks.
Whistle Down the Wind, which never made it beyond it's DC pre-Broadway run to the Martin Beck Theater (where the marquee was already up). The story may have been a bit out there, but I think it's one of Andrew Lloyd Webber's best scores.
This looks like it's going to be fantastic. Though the one day they're having it, it's already sold out at the only theater in my city.
What are the odds they'll add additional showtimes and/or another day besides 9/22? Saw this in London, and it's truly a spectacular production.

It really is a shame that this show couldn't become more than it was. It's one of the few 2-disk ALW cast recordings that I can listen to in its entirity without feeling the need to skip over any of the songs. I thought the score was extremelu well written, with so many beautiful, wonderful melodies. I would love to see this show get a 2nd chance.
Musicals that Make Subtle Tributes to Other Musicals Nov 3

I recently saw the fantastic revival of Miss Saigon in London, and got a kick out of the very subtle tribute that was made during the show to The Book of Mormon (I won't reveal what it is, but anyone that's seen it should understand what I'm referring to).
And The Book of Mormon itself offers a subtle nod during the show to The Lion King.
Are there many musicals where subtle tributes of this type to other shows are made?
