Anybody know more about this?   The folks at the Delaware Theatre Comp told me that it is simply awaiting for a Broadway theatre to open up that they believe will suit their needs.   it even says this in one of their playbills, in a section in the beginning that talks about previous shows that have been through the Delaware Theatre Comp.   Anyone know more?  Obviously Derek Klena is now with Anastasia, Aaron C Finley is at Kinky boots for the time being, etc....

I reviewed the Delaware production and it was one of the most clueless musical endeavors I've ever seen. Crow's score captures neither the music of the era or anything remotely related to classic musical theater. The performances were all over the place, and Marshall's production was glacial. It deserves its quiet death in the hinterlands. 

"You travel alone because other people are only there to remind you how much that hook hurts that we all bit down on. Wait for that one day we can bite free and get back out there in space where we belong, sail back over water, over skies, into space, the hook finally out of our mouths and we wander back out there in space spawning to other planets never to return hurrah to earth and we'll look back and can't even see these lives here anymore. Only the taste of blood to remind us we ever existed. The earth is small. We're gone. We're dead. We're safe." -John Guare, Landscape of the Body

Read Michael Riedel's column on Harry Potter coming to Broadway and all 3 theatre owners are fighting to get the show in their house and offering prime rail estate. He also says that for other shows, you take your number and wait in line, some never get called, as always being usurped by something better, thinking Minskys here and Prince of Broadway.

It's not good. But worse things have opened on Broadway.

I hated it in Virginia. Thought it was a complete waste of an afternoon. I understand why it was attempted, but it just didn't work.
