I was hoping more for the Norm Lewis production to transfer from DC.
Just to play devil's advocate, this could be for a movie and not a Broadway revival. It's just a picture of Harold Hill's suitcase, it doesn't say anything like "Broadway 2020."
I agree w/MarkBearSF. I was hoping for the Norm Lewis production as well, but unfortunately, it's not w/Norm. I do hope they get Rosie ODonnell. I told her that when I met her at the SD. She said she was looking forward to get back on Bway. She was great as the Irish Mom.So now all you seasoned Bway folks can tell me if Bway equity would allow a college marching band to perform 76 trombones as they did in Wash DC. Some tell me it's a union requirement that it be union musicians. They did have an on-stage orch in Wash DC, but the Univ of Maryland marching band was a treat at the finale.
It is a Broadway revival. Not a movie.
If it's a Broadway revival, I can see this being as big or bigger than Bette Midler in Hello Dolly!
Yes, it’s a Scott Rudin Broadway musical revival, as early as next season is correct!

Like “Hello, Dolly!” it is a new version of a very American musical, centered on a big name who can bring in the Benjamins. Jackman will need an excellent supporting cast and a high quality stand-in, but I am confident this production will get both....
This is an interesting tweet.https://twitter.com/LauraOsnes/status/1105538279653474304
Hugh Jackman (with Laura Osnes as his Marian) in THE MUSIC MAN. This will be a monster hit just like Rudin's HELLO, DOLLY! with Bette! I, for one, can't wait! Hugh is electrifying on stage!
Nobody sells tickets like Hugh. If he is indeed doing it on Broadway and this isn't some sick joke, this is gonna be BIG.I'm more interested in who's directing/choreographing. Hugh Jackman works with Warren Carlyle a lot, but there are a ton of people who could do a great, joyous Music Man.
The show has a website and social platformshttps://musicmanonbroadway.com/They'll probably announce today at some point now that it's out there, right?
Any potential this is what Jeremy Jordan is a part of?

It's interesting that he'll have two musical revivals coming out at around the same time. Is it possible that West Side Story is dead?"I think West Side Story is still on, but may be delayed to avoid competing with the Spielberg version. No-one can win THAT battle...

I wouldn't think Spielberg's would be released until, at the earliest, Summer 2020, and Ivo/Scott's West Side is scheduled to start previews in December 2019.
