I'm actually curious to see how the Donna Summer Musical tour is staged since they had all those projection screens on Broadway as well as the 3 leads coming up from under the stage.
Mike Barrett said: "Will Escape To Margeritaville be an equity tour? " I believe it will be a SETA tour contract.
Ah thats exciting about OOTI!!! Never got the chance to see it in NY, I do wonder how they'll restage it for the tour. Hopefully actors still go into the audience and the level of immersion can be kept in some ways.

I really don’t want to sound like an idiot, but is there any chance that SpongeBob will still have a tour this coming fall?

antonijan said: "Shnsf is getting Beautiful and Rent again!"Is this considered a complete season announcement, or I wonder if more shows will be added?I've never managed to see Beautiful and have heard really good things about it, so I'm excited that it's coming to SF. (I'm assuming this is still the equity tour? SHN seems to only do equity productions).Will likely pass on Rent - I love the show, but I've heard mixed things about the 20th anniversary tour.

Last year at this time they announced Les Mis and Phantom, which were not part of the 2018-2019 season. Last year's announcement came around the first week of February.

I was surprised to see that even the equity shows only stop in some cities for a week.

Upcoming announcement schedule:
According to their FB pages, Miami's season has 6 shows (including "Hamilton", and Minneapolis will be posting show clues each day on their FB page at 3 PM CST starting tomorrow (Thursday) until their reveal, which brings their total to 7-8 shows depending on how you interpret the message. San Jose and Vegas should provide some general insight as to what to we'll see out West. We have yet to get any locations for "SpongeBob," and "My Fair Lady" so perhaps they will start out there.I also got a show survey from the Capitol Center in Concord, NH which had "The Color Purple" listed as an possible option for their 19/20 season ("Jersey Boys" and "Beautiful" were the other options). So, I'm guessing it's returning after pretty much being off for a season. (Survey for reference: http://app.surveymethods.com/EndUser.aspx?E3C7ABB3EAA5B4B5E4)

BwayinVan said: "Calgary and Edmonton just announced their season:RentDEHWaitressWicked Season optionAnd Hamilton is coming next season.Vancouver will be announced in an hour but Im guessing it will be the same lineup"According to A Twitter video Vancouver is getting the same plus Finding Neverland.
So Vancouver is gettingRent, Waitress, Finding Neverland, Dear Evan Hansen, Wicked, and Hamilton in 2020/21.Anyone know, which tour versions are most worth it? I figure Hansen and Waitress?Is the Rent 20th any good? Non-Eq? Whos doing it?
I saw all of those tours in Los Angeles. I didn't care for Finding Neverland - but that was more about the actual show than the cast. I thought the 20th Anniversary Rent tour was awful. I am a fan of Rent, but this version felt like a hot mess. I saw a regional production the year before that was much better than the tour. The rest of those shows were great - with very strong casts.
