I actually got to spend some time with one of the cast members over Thanksgiving and they told me that last they had heard, they were waiting on a theatre. The was as of about 10 days ago. This person seemed cautiously optimistic.
I saw the show on Broadway during Pascal's time as Huey, but got his understudy Kevin Massey instead. He was wonderful but I don't remember him doing all the mannerisms that are present on the BluRay. In fact, I find that performance to be very distracting and therefore the video hard to get through. I loved the show when I saw it in NYC.
Recently, Theatre Under the Stars here in Houston did a local production of the show. I enjoyed their version almost as much as seeing it
The world premiere of BEAUTY & THE BEAST here in Houston, circa 1993. The night I saw it Tom Bosley forgot some of his lines but was still quite charming. I remember being awed by the entire show and especially the transformation at the end.

Playbill should shut down its upcoming shows page or actually commit to sharing correct information. Camp David, for example, has been dead since 2016.

I was there last night also. The singer’s name was Jenna Lee-James and she is apparently an English stage actress.
Houston BAA just sent out an interesting email. They're asking for people who attend shows in NYC regularly to come to the Hobby Center (our venue in Houston) to film testimonials for shows for their upcoming season. They list 11 shows for what is usually a 6 show plus 2 optionals season. So I assume some aren't coming, but the list is:
A BRONX TALE CATS (confirmed for this season - not sure if part of subscription or optional show) CHARLIE & THE CHOCOLATE FAC
Theatre Under the Stars here in Houston just announced their 2019/2020 season last week and ONCE ON THIS ISLAND is part of their season. In their announcement, they specifically state that it is the national tour of the show direct from Broadway. So that would seem to indicate the tour is happening. No idea of Equity/Non-Equity or cast obviously but at least they confirmed the tour.
@Mike - regarding the Millie and South Pacific tours, it says they are split weeks or one nighters, so I'd expect non-equity if that's true.
@BroadwayinAtl - I read a Forbes article about the Dolly tour that said it was a two-year tour. If so, that means more dates are coming. I'm hoping it will be a part of BAA Houston's season. I'm also curious to see if Betty Buckley is a part of the second year, if there indeed is one.
Houston's Theatre Under the Stars has officially announced.
A Chorus Line - September 10 - September 22, 2019 Spring Awakening - October 8 - October 20, 2019 Elf the Musical - December 7 - December 22, 2019 Once on This Island - February 18 - March 1, 2020 Pure Country - April 14 - April 26, 2020 Newsies - May 19 - May 31, 2020
They confirmed in their announcement video that ONCE ON THIS ISLAND is the national tour and the other shows will all be
Just got an email from BAA Houston saying they would be announcing in March. Does not specify an actual date unfortunately. DEAR EVAN HANSEN has already been announced and CATS is one of the shows, coming in October. Curious to see the rest but I suspect COME FROM AWAY and HELLO, DOLLY! will be two of them.
Just got word of the Theatre Under the Stars 19-20 season for Houston. Shows are:
A Chorus Line - September 2019 Spring Awakening - October 2019 Elf the Musical - December 2019 Once on This Island - February 2020 Pure Country - April 2020 Newsies - May 2020
Don't have more than this and not sure which will be locally produced and which will be tours, if any. This past season was all locally done. I'd assume Chorus Line, Elf and Once on Th

When I log into my TUTS subscriber account there is a message that says their 19/20 season will be announced in January. I recently asked them if the season would be all locally produced like this one and they wouldnt give me a straight answer. So I suspect at least one or two tours to be on the Theatre Under the Stars schedule. Ill post more as I get it.
