Any idea when Syracuse is announcing?
A Chorus Line revival played its final Broadway performance on August 17, 2008. The tour played its final performance on August 21, 2011. A new non-equity tour started in October 2012 played its final performance on March 23, 2013. Another non-equity tour launched on January 20, 2018. The tour ended its US run in Kansas City and then toured throughout Japan August & September 2018.

Iím impressed with Syracuseís season, we rarely get shows that are in their first or even second years and honestly, rarely get equity tours.

Hamilton will also be in the 2020-2021 season.

That is because of the New York state tax breaks that encourage producers to begin the tours in the area.  Both Jesus Christ Superstar and My Fair Lady will be doing their on site rehearsals and tech processes at the Landmark in Syracuse, with five weeks in residence for each show.

The Clay Center in Charleston WV indicated that theyíll be announcing sometime around May 16th. Itís usually non-Equity National Tours with maybe one exception. Most all of the shows that come through there Iíve seen already in Pittsburgh a couple years before.

This is the first time that a show has teched Here inn Syracuse (besides the new Lion King tour). Utica and Proctors get the majority of them. I’m happy Syracuse is stepping up and getting some good tours in.

While My Fair Lady might be in town for total five weeks, JSC will likely only be in for three weeks, including performances. And this past fall, Syracuse launched the Fiddler tour. So now into a third season of productions utilizing the tax credit in the Syracuse market

DC's National Theatre has finally announced, and it's pretty terrible. From the announcement:

  • "Most notably, eight productions will make their D.C. premieres on our stage. Direct from Broadway, comedian Mike Birbiglia kicks things off this September with his hilarious one-man show THE NEW ONE. The season continues with ESCAPE TO MARGARITAVILLE, featuring both original songs and your most-loved Jimmy Buffett classics. Just in time for the holidays, don’t miss FIDDLER ON THE ROOF, the new Broadway revival from Tony-winning director Bartlett Sher. Hit plays THE KING’S SPEECH and JOHN LEGUIZAMO’S LATIN HISTORY FOR MORONS will also take the stage, followed by musical sensations BANDSTANDROALD DAHL’S CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY, and SUMMER: THE DONNA SUMMER MUSICAL.
  • "Our most ambitious season yet also features beloved musicals and celebrated special events, back in D.C. by popular demand. Tony- and Pulitzer-winning RENT returns this fall in celebration of its 20th anniversary, while the smash hit JERSEY BOYS returns with the behind-the-music story of Frankie Valli and The Four Season. The theatrical magic continues with THE ILLUSIONISTS – MAGIC OF THE HOLIDAYS and the impossible-to-define, easy-to-love BLUE MAN GROUP next spring."

So basically, 3-4 shows that completely bombed, 2 non-theater shows, 2 repeats of stuff that has already been here recently, but now in non-eq tours, and 2 one-man shows. I was hoping the wait was to announce some exciting pre-Broadway tryout, like Mean Girls or Beetlejuice were in previous seasons. But no, it was apparently make sure they had this dreck nailed down.

I am befuddled by that National line up. Who are they looking to get to subscribe? How they package this will be interesting. I don't know if many people will look at this and say "sign me up for ALL of that." A quarter or a third of those will appeal to certain folks but only 'theater for theater's sake' people will be diving in for all of it. I am one of those people but even I'm having a hard time being excited about re-upping.

I thought after Spongebob and Frozen didn't end up at Kennedy they would be at National. I bet they'll be on the 20-21 KC lineup now.

What a deflating way to start the week.

SpongeBob is a non-union tour and the Kennedy Center exclusively only presents equity tours

Thanks! Once and Beautiful are actually the only ones I hadn't seen. I’ve already attended Waitress, An American in Paris, and The Color Purple national tours when they came through Pittsburgh in the 2017/2018 season. May have to go down to Charleston to check out the Carol King Musical and include it in with my 2019/2020 Pittsburgh lineup.

I see a couple of mentions of Once on the 2019-20 announcements. Does this mean there's going to be another non-Equity tour?

No it’t not. It’s just switching from a full production contract to an equity SETA contract.

THANK YOU for the clarification on the ONCE and BEAUTIFUL tours. I had to look up what SETA meant. I also know that the Pittsburgh CLO is doing ONCE as well, as part of their Summer Series, but it’s locally produced and not part of the touring production from what I understand. Please correct me if I’m wrong.

Come From Away: Nov. 26 - Dec. 1
Riverdance: January 10 - 12
A Chorus Line revival played its final Broadway performance on August 17, 2008. The tour played its final performance on August 21, 2011.

In Providence, if you had to drop one show, either Escape to Margaritaville (the world premiere) or Spongebob The Musical, which would you pick? (Trying to keep costs down and these two are the least likely to delight us.)

I will say that I went from being very skeptical about SpongeBob on Broadway to being an acolyte after I saw it. Nothing Iíve heard about Margaritaville made me or makes me want to see it so I would overwhelmingly vote for you to see SpongeBob and skip Margaritaville.

I’m in a somewhat similar predicament where I can (in exchange for The Lion King) drop either Margaritaville or The Donna Summer Musical, where I was leaning toward dropping the latter. Any advice?
