I could see going into the Booth after Gary closes.

Nobody is talking about a transfer and the Booth is prime for star driven plays usually...heard the Faye Dunaway play -Tea at Five ~ is considering the Booth this fall

Maybe The Barrymore for The Lehman Trilogy then? Wasn’t aware it was playing that theatre in London.

ALMOST FAMOUS opens out-of-town at the Old Globe this September and has commercial producers attached. If that has a good response, it could hit Broadway next Spring.

Circle In The Square is now boomed thru January 2020. I suspect that will be the last extension for Oklahoma but after tony wins the box office may really hit.

A tidbit from Michael Riedel's post-Tonys column this morning:

"Word on the street last night was that Hugh Jackman will be taking “The Music Man” to the Winter Garden next season."

Ordinarily, I would just think this is Michael stirring the pot, but he's close to Rudin, who probably fed him that. Jackman's next movie (the Lisa Joy thriller) starts shooting in late October after his concert tour, so there's a world in which that wraps in January, MM rehearsals start in early Feb, and it starts previews mid-March.

I still wonder if West Side is dead (I know I sound like a conspiracy theorist).

Correct. That's why I was a little surprised to read this. Unless they're actively trying to move the show up by 6 months.

March 2020 would be this season, not next. There's been no indication that it's being moved up.

With Who's Afraid announcing the Booth, rather than the expected Golden, what does this mean for the spring in the Golden? Will slave play extend? Are we still waiting on something to come in? Am I just overlooking something?

Can’t imagine Slave Play will have the grosses to warrant an extension. There are a dozen+ shows looking for Shubert play-sized houses right now. It won’t go dark.

The Booth is a perfect house for Woolf, and much more desirable than the Golden; it’s a win for Rudin to get the Booth. Can’t wait for a Page Six fabrication about Metcalf walking through the Stage Door of the Golden instead of the Booth.

Looks like the following are definitely open for the spring:

-Barrymore

-Circle...

-Cort

-Golden

-Lyceum

-Neil Simon

-Sondheim

 

Does anyone have any scoop?

Barrymore might be a tight turnaround time since I think The Inheritance ends March 1. If the Tony cutoff is the end of April that's not a lot of time to do rehearsals, load in, and previews, though not necessarily impossible either.

I’m sure The Inheritance will extend, unless it’s numbers are completely abysmal.

I believe Billy Crystal's show is eyeing the Neil Simon.

A Chorus Line revival played its final Broadway performance on August 17, 2008. The tour played its final performance on August 21, 2011. A new non-equity tour started in October 2012 played its final performance on March 23, 2013. Another non-equity tour launched on January 20, 2018. The tour ended its US run in Kansas City and then toured throughout Japan August & September 2018.

Word isn't just out about Virginia Woolf at the Booth. Tickets have been on sale for a couple of days, so, it's official.

The Simon would make sense, with the Nederlanders producing (and the Nederlander now being occupied by Lehman Tril)

K POP has been circling Circle.

How can KPOP possibly transfer to Broadway? It's an immersive show, and not in the same way as something like Great Comet or The Jungle. The action is divided between three interactive segments happening simultaneously in different room across the building. Even if you consolidated the audience so that everything took place in a set linear order, the script would have to be overhauled to put less emphasis on the interactive nature of the show, because there's no way they give that experience to 600 audience members. And the show could no longer be structured as a "tour" or the KPOP factory. 

It wouldn't just require re-staging, the whole show would have to be so drastically re-conceived that it would essentially be an entirely different piece of theatre from what played at Ars Nova.

What show is K POP? I’ve heard of K Pop before, is it a show with K Pop music?
