Does anyone know what plays & musicals are coming to B'way in 2014? I know about Big Fish, Les Mis, Oliver (possibly), My Fair Lady (possibly), Honeymoon in Vegas (possibly) but I know NOTHING about the plays (although I REALLY should) or other musicals. Anyone know anything more? Thanks! :)

A few potentially good ones. Obviously 'Prince of B'way' got cancelled, but did 'Cotton Club Parade'? Haven't heard much about that in a while.

REBECCA, LOVE NEVER DIES and that revival of FUNNY GIRL are going to play in rep. I heard that from a reliable source.
"The Spectacle has, indeed, an emotional attraction of its own, but, of all the parts, it is the least artistic, and connected least with the art of poetry. For the power of Tragedy, we may be sure, is felt even apart from representation and actors. Besides, the production of spectacular effects depends more on the art of the stage machinist than on that of the poet."

How completely underwhelming...

Not as bad as this past season...close...but next year still has more potential than this. That said, I'll be renewing my membership to off-broadway powerhouses playwright's horizon, 2nd Stage, and (to a lesser degree this year) NYTW.

aren't we due for new revivals of Gypsy and Guys & Dolls?
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.

I'm sure there will be plenty of surprises and things that come in at the last second. Seems like a lot of new musicals got scared of Matilda this season.

Mean Girls isn't going to hit Broadway anytime soon. Don't get your hopes up for a few seasons, at least.

It's way too early too know. We often don't know everything until January or February, much less the beginning of April the season before.
Scratch and claw for every day you're worth! Make them drag you screaming from life, keep dreaming You'll live forever here on earth.

Plays aren't generally announced very far in advance, but if we're including fall 2013 there's the WAITING FOR GODOT/NO MAN'S LAND in-rep coming with Sirs Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart. There's also the rumored BETRAYAL with Rachel Weisz and Daniel Craig, and Bradley Cooper has openly talked about how he'll be doing THE ELEPHANT MAN on Broadway this time next year in interviews, presumably transferring the production he did at Williamstown recently.
Words don't deserve that kind of malarkey. They're innocent, neutral, precise, standing for this, describing that, meaning the other, so if you look after them you can build bridges across incomprehension and chaos. But when they get their corners knocked off, they're no good anymore…I don't think writers are sacred, but words are. They deserve respect. If you get the right ones in the right order, you can nudge the world a little.

I haven't heard anything about BULLETS OVER BROADWAY since the announcement was made several years ago so I am guessing this project is on the backburner.

And no word on THE NUTTY PROFESSOR since its debut in Nashville last summer.
