Revivals

What's a show that everyone would love to see revived? Remember: Certain musicals have amazing music, but the direction caused it to close early....revivals can be made better!

What's left to revive? Pipe Dream?

RE: Revivals I'd like to see = I wish someone would bring back Parade. It was so fantastic, and it just didn't make it commercially, which is too bad (but I understand this - its Fluff that panders to the masses - not Art...heavy sigh...)...for the most part, I want no more revivals. I want to see new and interesting stuff - rich and dramatic and singable. I haven't liked much in the recent past, other than Avenue Q, The Allergist's Wife, The Last 5 Years (brilliant)and a few other small pieces. So to you up-and-coming writers out there I say this - DON'T STOP!...We need you and your work, and don't let anyone tell you to change things for commercial reasons - unless you're simply in it for the money.
Best of luck to anyone involved in today's theatre. I miss it.

South Pacific (55 years since it's had a Broadway opening)
A Little Night Music (31 years since it's first and only opening)
Carnival - coming soon, apparently
On the Twentieth Century - unlikely, but delightful show
110 in the Shade - flop show that needs to be rediscovered a la She Loves Me

From what I've been reading on the other board, A Chorus Line sounds great. I've never seen it at all! Other than that, I would also like to see more new material. Especially things that are considered risky. Often, those prove to be most interesting.
