BroadwayBeebe said: "When I saw Oklahoma an employee of Circle in the Square alluded that it was unlikely to extend as something already has the space booked for the upcoming holiday season. "“get ready for the show, for the HISTOREMIX". lol JK. I wonder who though.. Is titanic still happening? Maybe that's going to CITS?
The Belasco is open after Network closes. It's about the same size as the Broadhurst, but I haven't heard anyone mention it when talking about JLP. Could anyone else see JLP taking the Belasco?
Once The Ferryman (Jacobs), What the Constitution Means to Me (Hayes), and Burn This (Hudson) close, what’s going in those theatres? I thought Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune was going into Broadhurst?
InTheBathroom1 said: "Second Stage has a pretty packed season of plays for the Hayes next season. And Frankie and Johnny is a limited run and will be over after the summer. " That would be perfect for JLP.
If CITS is available, can I make my plea for someone to please create a gorgeous Children of Eden revival in that space? Thx!
The Barrymore should be open as well, right? Nothing has been announced that I know of since Band's Visit closed.
In addition to theatres that are currently dark or will be dark due to announced closings, I also think the following theatres are quite likely to become available in time for a 2019-20 show to get in: Broadway, Brooks Atkinson, Longacre, Lyceum, Nederlander, Neil Simon, Sondheim, and Beaumont
We should remember that the economics of a small house like the Hayes and Booth don't lend themselves to larger shows a la JLP and Magic Mike. For one, JLP weekly grosses will have to cover Alanis' royalties.My guessing is that these shows are aiming for 19-20 season, confirmed and rumored:JLPGirl From The North Country (THIS is one that I could see working in the Hayes, but given 2nd Stage's season, unlikely)LempickaDreamgirlsDon't Stop Til You Get Enough (unfortunate title given the resurgence of controversy around MJ and I respect Lynn Nottage, but there's no way on god's green earth that a Jackson Estate-sanctioned musical will address this subject matter in a real way)DianaMagic MikeThe InheritanceTea at Five (I guess the Booth or Jacobs)BlueGlengarry w. PattiWho's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?West Side StoryOnce Upon a One More TimeMarie (formerly Little Dancer)TitanicSecret GardenDevil Wears Prada (this one may be a 2020-2021 fixture, but they've been dripping out news, so seems like it's full steam ahead and producer Kevin McCollum loves to bring a show in cold without a tryout; see: Something Rotten) And if I were to guess, these house will be vacant at some point:SondheimBeaumontBroadhurstBoothGolden (I assume this will play home to Laurie Metcalf for the 4th year)JacobsBarrymoreBelascoCortBrooks-AtkinsonSimonCircle in the SquareHudsonBroadwayWinter Garden (BJ ain't cheap to run and I'd bet they've already taken losses in previews)Nederlander A lot looks primed to have a fresh crop of shows, so really excited to see where everything shakes out. I'm probably missing some obvious ones.
If Beautiful and Waitress are at least earning its weekly nut, then I see them keeping their doors open.The shows that need to worry more are those that haven't recouped yet (i.e. King Kong, Cher Show, Be More Chill, Pretty Woman, The Prom, etc.)
Just so there's a list somewhere on this page...Currently or soon-to-be vacant theatres with no announced replacements:American AirlinesBarrymoreJacobsBoothBroadhurstCircle in the SquareCortHudsonGoldenStudio 54
I always had the idea that Girl From The North Country would take the Circle in the Square, not even like "I heard..." but just that seems like the best fit outside of the Hayes.
i also was under impression both Girl from North Country and Oklahoma! were both looking at CITS, and Oklahoma! got itself in order quicker (and was not seekin an open-ended run). Seems like GFNC would be a perfect there in the fall.
Id presume The Lehman Trilogy and The Inheritance will both transfer next season, and God I hope they do. Both seem like amazing pieces of theatre. I could see both playing either The Jacobs or the Belasco.
Waitress recouped a while ago, and according to several people I know, they have a replacement in mind for after Shoshana. The Brooks won’t be available any time soon. As I previously mentioned, JLP is probably taking the Broadhurst after Frankie and Johnny. So it won’t be vacant, as people have said.

You know, one of those things that's just too perfect to actually happen.
