what happened to this
If anyone is interested, seems they just had a reading and commercial producers are attached. http://www.playbill.com/article/ahrens-and-flahertys-little-dancer-tests-legs-in-nyc-workshop
I'm very interested! Thanks for the link.
What wonderful news. We were just talking about Littl Dancer yesterday and wondering if it was still progressing. We liked it very much at the Kennedy Center and would definitely see it again.
Is this coming to Broadway next season?
Butter Broadway said: "Is this coming to Broadway next season?I hope! It's a great score. It would be a crime if we never got a Broadway production.
I think the premise behind the show is fascinating and I am a Lynn Ahrens fan, so I'd really love to hear more from this. If memory serves me, the Kennedy Center cast was very good as well.
I really hope it does come to Broadway--such a beautiful show.
Oh, I do hope it makes it! I loved it so much and have been so frustrated that it hasn't made it to Broadway yet.
I wonder if this cast will be in the 5th Avenue production? It would be exciting to see Robert Lindsay in a new musical!The industry reading will star New York City Ballet Principal Dancer Tiler Peck (On The Town), Tony and Olivier Award winner Robert Lindsay (Me and My Girl), Tony Award nominee Kate Baldwin (Hello, Dolly!), Tony Award winner Karen Ziemba (Prince of Broadway), Tony Award nominee Dee Hoty (Bright Star)...https://www.broadwayworld.com/article/Susan-Stroman-to-Direct-and-Choreograph-Industry-Reading-of-New-Ahrens-Flaherty-Musical-LITTLE-DANCER-Baldwin-Ziemba-and-More-to-Star-20180529

So glad to see Karen Ziemba is still attached to this production. I've seen her many times over the years and never enjoyed her more than I did in this show.
Random tidbit: this casting call implies that the musical may be renamed 'Marie', as hinted by Lynn Ahrens in a recent interview.
"Little Dancer" is a much more interesting title than "Marie"...hopefully it's just a working title.
It looks as though it's now called 'Marie, Dancing Still'.https://www.5thavenue.org/show/marie('Dancing Still' is/was one of the song titles.)
I liked the title Little Dancer better.

CATSNYrevival said: "I liked the title Little Dancer better."absolutely a better title . I wonder what precipitated the change? Confusion with Elton's "Tiny Dancer"? But Marie is awfully generic. It's not an iconic name like Evita or even Amelie . I saw that Tiler Peck is back in the lead role after having also done it at the Kennedy Center; as are a number of the other folks from that cast.
The title “Little Dancer” was the least of the D.C. production’s problems although I agree I kept calling it Tiny Dancer. The new title is not an improvement though. From what I recall, the songs were okay if unmemorable, the book was weakest piece and the highlight was the dancing and the “reveal” at the end. It wasn’t Broadway-ready then and I am glad they’re taking their time with revising it, but I do fear that if they think that the new title is an improvement, the other revisions may not be improvements either. I am glad I saw it, mainly because it was the only time I’ve been to the Kennedy Center.
