Has anything been formally announced for these 5 theaters??? I know we have our speculations but wondering if they are officially still unannounced .....
I know about Aladdin at the new Amsterdam, though it seems they'd try to fill that theater in the meantime....

I could see the Les Mis revival being successful at the New Amsterdam before Aladdin comes in.

Les Mis is coming in next spring.

Aladdin has the New Amsterdam booked for--say it with me--NEXT SPRING.

See the problem here?

What a colossal piece of crap! It'll probably run for years.

Add Brooks Atkinson too!

If/Then is going into a Nederlander Theatre.

Is Romeo and Juliet at the Rodgers limited?

Just a thought, but wouldn't producers like to use the Imperial, where Les Mis started in the states as a marketing ploy for the revival?

Les Miz did not start in the U.S. at the Imperial. It had its try out in D.C., then opened on Broadway at the Broadway theater until November 1990 when it moved to the Imperial. But, the Imperial is where the majority of its original Broadway run took place, so it would be terrific to see it back there.

I have a feeling that some shows which aren't even on our radar will pop up next season.

I could see a seasonal show moving into the New Amsterdam, like A Christmas Story. But I believe the New Amsterdam is owned by Disney so they might be picky.

Bodyguard and Top Hat are trying to come in this season and I can't understand why no producer will bring in Dirty Dancing given the huge amount of money and success it bought did in London...

Because Dirty Dancing was a huge dud here in the states on tour.

And I can't see a return to a theater as a marketing ploy. MOST folks could care less about that sort of thing -- I doubt most even remember where it played.

Heck, I loved the show and can't tell you which theater I saw it in...although I wouldn't be suprised to find out it was at both.
If we're not having fun, then why are we doing it? These are DISCUSSION boards, not mutual admiration boards. Discussion only occurs when we are willing to hear what others are thinking, regardless of whether it is alignment to our own thoughts.

If/Then is a pretty small show. The cast audition notice is pretty small, so I can't imagine it'd be in a very big theater. Maybe the Brooks Atkinson? But who knows. It could get panned in DC and then not open this season.

COTTON CLUB PARADE (or whatever they are calling it these days) is going into the Brooks this fall.

And I hear LES MIS will go into the Imperial next spring.

Things can always change, but I think these are done deals.

Normally, dramamama, I would agree with you here 100%. Having said that, there is a plaque in the pavement in front of the Imperial in honor of LES MIS. So, if any show could make a marketing stunt of out a homecoming run (which is a stupid idea), this strikes me as the one.
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.

An usher at J & H, Sunday night, told me that A Christmas Story was starting in October at the Marquis.

I think the Marquis will be great space for A Christmas Story. Smack right in Times Square so tourists will find it easily. And they can decorate the lobby for both the show and Christmas nicely.

I also heard that Les Mis is going into The Imperial.

I just noticed that plaque about 2 weeks ago and thought to myself it will probably return to the Imperial and half everyone will be standing over it taking pictures of it on the way in.
Just give the world Love.

A CHRISTMAS STORY at the Marquis would be a great fit! Once the show wraps after the holiday season, that allows for THE BODYGUARD to load in and set up shop for the Spring. The Marquis is a prime location, it's just unfortunate it will remain vacant throughout the summer unless something else pops up.

For LES MIS, I've always thought it would be a great fit at the Ambassador Theatre. That would mean CHICAGO would have to move out (to the BOOTH perhaps?)but capacity/space wise, the new revival could work really well in that theatre. I'm sure CamMack wants to keep it open for as long as possible, so a theatre like the Ambassdor with 1,088 seats instead of the Imperial's 1,400+ would make sense.

Lyceum is booked. No Man's Land/Waiting For Godot will play in rep there starting in the Fall. They announced yesterday.

The key theaters already have SPRING tenants booked. It's an interesting situation, because the owners are counting on filling their stages this Fall with limited engagements until the more commercial shows are ready for the Spring.

The Jujamcyns were successful in acquiring LET IT BE which will be their Fall tenant til the end of the year. Then in February, expect a highly anticipated musical to move in.

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."

Godot/No Man's Land is playing the Cort, not the Lyceum.

Correct on both counts. I've mixed up two sets of theaters.
