The title is very misleading! The Secret Garden is only going to be presented as a one night only concert at Avery Fisher Hall.

Same here! Will this be an actual running revival, or just a one night only event thing?

One night show. It's like the productions of Parade, Titanic, and Ragtime that have occurred as concerts.

It is very misleading. Can't wait to hear the about the casting.
Every so often there was a rare moment of perfect balance when I soared above him.

I would love for them to get Benanti back again to play Lily this time.

Still hoping for a full revival of this musical, though. Should have happened a long time ago, in my opinion. How I wish I could have seen the original Broadway production.

Perfect choice!!
"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."

Sydney Lucas will be fantastic.

I never put any thought into who might be playing the role, but now that she has been announced, it seems so obvious. Of course Sidney Lucas is playing Mary in this concert. Hopefully I can make it! Loved Parade last year.

Since he is getting so much love in the Allegiance thread: "Stafford Arima (Allegiance) will serve as director."

 

Is there an older role JCM can do now? Not very familiar with this show...

He could possibly pull off Neville Craven, but he's not who I would think of for the role. 

 

I wonder if they'll recruit Jake Lucas to play Colin!

Alfie Boe and Ramin Karimloo for Archibald and Neville?? They are both doing shows, but it would be crazy.

Norm Lewis as Neville? Ali Stroker as Martha? Ha, JBroadway, Jake Lucas as Colin would be FUN.

My head is swimming. Normally I'm not into the whole hypothetical casting thing, but this got me going. The Secret Garden 2016 Concert Presentation

All they need to do is bring back Steven Pasquale to do Archie and all will be right in the world.

Does this series normally make a live recording?

Because Sydney Lucas was in my mind before I saw the cast list and it's going to be fantastic. One of my favorite scores to date.

so I smile like Mona Lisa and I lay my Visa down

No, they don't. They haven't made one for any of the 3 concert they've done so far.

Oh My God. Any idea of how expensive the tickets will be? I vaguely remember the cheapest Parade tickets being in the $75-$95 range.

Since Jeremy Jordan was shockingly amazing as Leo Frank in Parade, I'd like to cast my vote for Jeremy Jordan as Archibald Craven.

When I see the phrase "the ____ estate", I imagine a vast mansion in the country full of monocled men and high-collared women receiving letters about productions across the country and doing spit-takes at whatever they contain. -Kad
