Anyone heard anything about Roundabout’s Spring musical? Last I heard it was between Parade and Caroline or Change (both great choices) but haven’t heard any updates recently.
In addition to Mrs. Doubtfire, I've heard credible rumors that Secret Life of Bees is also eyeing a spring Transfer. And potentially Six as well. So we will have original scores for sure, but it will be light year and we will almost certainly have plays nominated in that category as well.

I can't imagine a LMM showbeing on broadway for 4 months and not getting any nominations but I also can't see how that would work. Who would even be eligible? Would the performers? Improv is so apples-to-oranges to regular musical theatre that it's impossible to nominate them for the same awards. I am not looking forward to seeing how they shoehorn it in and the inevitable controversy that will
Jordan Catalano said: "Man, I hope Kudisch comes with the show."
Kudisch is also attached to Flamingo Kid which is also eyeing a transfer this season. He has a bigger role in Flamingo Kid but North Country is probably more high profile. So I'm not sure what he'll end up with.
So glad to hear this isn't dead. I was one of the people that loved this show, even though I understand why its not everyone's cup of tea.

Don't forget this show doesn't have to sell out every night to recoup. It is a one person show that will likely require minimal set and a small crew. The running costs for this will be incredibly low, shouldn't be too hard to turn a profit.

Maybe this question warrants its own thread (or maybe it has already had its own thread), but would you be willing to say more about this?I’ve seen my fair share of West End shows, but never had an experience with a big star being out.
I’m surprised to hear that because in my experience,London theatres tend to bevery
I thought for sure they would announce some kind of tour or transfer of this show in conjunction with the Tony performance. Otherwise it seems like a weird thing to do, but I'm sure it will boost its popularity with regional theaters so that maybe that was the aim?

The collaboration between projections and scenic to make the house move was awesome. However whenever we weren’t in the main house set, the design felt compromised. The drops were pretty but when they were on the roof or in the attic it felt less thought through.
Hadestown effectively boiled down their design to two striking looks that transformed bril

Â Wow! Â Brilliant choreographers ( Bob Fosse, Jerome Robbins, Michael Bennett, etc... ) are legends and have contributed so much.

The Best Play and Best Musical trophies only go to the producing team, except Best Play which also goes to the Playwright (since they do not have a Best Book of a Play category). Best Revival of a Play and Best Revival of Musical also go to the producing team, although in some cases Best Revival of a P
