My no means is it "in coming" but plans are being made. As most people know it takes more than a whiff of a magic wand to transfer a production - expect more concrete materical and PR to be released towards the end of the year/beginning of next. It could all dewindle away, but from source from the producers and many houses showing keen interest, I would be very confident we will see this production of Gypsy in London next year.
YF does because of the cast, but i would never pay those prices.
SITPWG is fantastic, you guys are in for a treat. G+D if that comes over is also excellant.
I hope something else comes in for the Autumn season ... Witches or something..otherwise nothing greatly is appealing to me!

Hairspray will not be moving. With the film coming out it is sure to improve sales and fill the Neil Simon. Plus it fits so well in that theatre and its not exactly a move to downsize or anything.
I really think we could see Witches of Eastwick come in. Or, a limited season of a show filling time before something like Guys and Dolls, 9 to 5 etc moves in. Be Great if Follies was that limited season.
Little things like no hair can obv. be tackled by hair/makeup/costume - but things like weight, color, extreme and noticable features cannot be overcome and sometimes people just arent suited to the role no matter how well they could perform it.

The week extension has been pulled and a Broadway Theatre has suddenly has become available...possibly as it needs time to come to New York?
Be great for it come to Broadway....would they re-cast any roles to draw in a bigger box office I wonder?

Hairspray is doing fine - and with the film it will see thru to 2008 I am certain. ACL - ain't going no where - Re-Couped, not expensive to run and is doing well with a London and Tour planned so that will be around for a while I will safely bet.
Spamalot - I don't know, seems to be dropping....2008 could see it go.
Grey Gardens I think towards the end of the year may close.
