Anyone have any guesses if we'll see it this season, or next?
No idea if it'll last.
Are you joking?
The Tony Kiser Theatre is within the vicinity of Broadway, so it may not be worth it to transfer to a Broadway stage. And it's ultimately up to theatre availability. So far, every Broadway house appears to be booked for this season, with some shows yet having to announce a closing date. Has Second Stage ever had a transfer to Broadway?
No never ever
Imelsa Staunton is being a troll, but yeah, atuomala, you might want to some research. Second Stage has had several shows go to Broadway, including Next to Normal, Spelling Bee and Everyday Rapture, just off the top of my head. Proximity to Broadway theatres has never really been a factor in whether or not a show transfers, as far as I know.
Regarding the OP's question: I think it very well could. It's that kind of show, for sure. But probably not this season.
It seems like a rather small show, and this would be the wrong season, as we already have Hamilton dominating.
I think Witness Uganda is a much more eye grabbing name. Invisible Thread sounds like a dance piece.
I figure next season, if anything. BUT, I'm not sure if it'll get an audience if it does... Been following this since WITNESS UGANDA's presentation at Encores.
Anything can transfer. But the likelihood of being commercially viable if it does: zero.
Maybe when Second Stage opens at the Hayes in 2016-2017? It's possible.
I feel like Dear Evan Hanson would transfer to the Hayes for 2st's inaugural show in the space
As I said in the original Invisible Thread thread (sorry, I couldn't wait to use that), it's my opinion that this is a better production than most of what's on Broadway right now. We loved everything about the show, from the tuneful score to the moving performances. It was our favorite production of the 3 that we saw during our last trip (Allegiance and Color Purple being the other two). I would love to see a transfer, but I know it's not likely because it would probably be such a hard sell to the general theatre-going public (although I think that stressing the fact that this story is true would help in promotions). I'd love to see them try it, because it would be great to get to see it again.
As far as Second Stage's programming at the Helen Hayes, Carole Rothman has already gone on record saying the focus there will be presenting new American plays on Broadway, not musicals.
Had post this question in another thread, but figured I would try my luck in the one I created as well. Just curious as to whether or not there is a set schedule for the role of Griffin. Or, if anyone knows if one would be lucky to catch the actual Griffin in any particular evening performances?
For what it's worth, I saw the show on a Saturday evening, and the alternate WAS on.
There is someone advancing the production. McCollum maybe? I can't remember off the top of my head. That doesn't say too much, but it does say something.
I would think Dear Evan Hansen would be their big Broadway push this season.
Yes, Kevin McCollum is enhancing the show and developing right now with the aim of a Broadway transfer. We will see what happens!
