What would you produce?
I would produce Laura Benanti in My Fair Lady, Bernadette Peters in Sweeney Todd, and Patti LuPone in Into the Woods.
I was asked this question today, and found it fun to think of all the productions I've dreamed of seeing for so long, and I thought I'd forward the question on to you guys!
I would produce enough new and exciting shows that there would no longer be space for revivals, jukebox musicals, magic shows etc. And the funny thing is, there would be enough money to do it again and again for well beyond my natural life.
a Barlett Sher revival of WSS at LCT (vivian beaumont)
a new show similar to Light in the Piazza (score influenced by classical / operatic music)
Honeymoon in Vegas !!!!
A lady Gaga musical. Costumes like bad romance works look amazing.
I would produce something ORIGINAL AND NEW
Produce all of Wildhorn's unproduced shows on Broadway.
A musical adaptation of the 1966 Hayley Mills/June Harding/Rosalind Russell film THE TROUBLE WITH ANGELS.
I would fund EVERYTHING needed for a cast recording of The Apple Tree revival with Kristin Chenoweth, Brian d'Arcy James and Marc Kudisch. #notbitter

The Rink with Beth Leavel and Leslie Kritzer
It is disheartening to me that so many here seem more interested in resurrecting the old than creating new original theatre.
Original muisicals1960s sitcoms:
Hogans Heroes the musical
Batman, the musical
Newhart, the musical
Lost in Space, the musical
the odd couple, the musical
I dream of Genie the musical
Addams family the musical(oops too late)
Mandy Patinkin and Bernadette Peters in Sweeney Todd. It'd either be brilliant or a disaster, and I don't care which.
I would do a lavish production of my own pipe dream show.
It's a romantic musical set before and after WWII in a mill town theatre. Too many other details to list here.
I don't know who could do the score, maybe do a contest like they did for RAGTIME to see who has the best ideas. Something mixing very classic R&H type stuff with jazz/swing. Maybe some more off the wall Blitzstein type stuff.
Dance of the Vampires revival.The RIGHT way this time!
THE PRINCESS BRIDE (the musical), dammit!
I'd commission a new musical based on the old Planet Money episode called "The Giant Pool of Money". In my opinion it's a fascinating and important slice of history of near-operatic scope.

it will be glorious either way. LOL
I would produce hamlet 2
I read the question and my mind immediately flashed here...
Max: The two cardinal rules of producing are one: Never put your own money in the show.
Leo: And two?
Max: [yelling] Never put your own money in the show!
Well, joanf, it's kind of more of a risk to put your money in the show if you have a lot to lose. As the pot is currently $1.3 billion, I think the hypothetical winner could risk their own money on a few shows and still be able to invest the rest and live off the interest.
