What are some currently "broadway-aimed" shows that haven't announced a broadway transfer?
Is there any news on Lempicka, or has that just been a hopeful rumor? Oh and there was a Reefer Madness reading a few weeks ago, so could that be getting a revival soon?
Could Marie, Dancing Still (that's the updated title right?) make it in this season? I didn't see how the latest tryout was received.
HenryTDobson said: "If Diana is the only new score of next season, we should cancel the Tony Awards now."Well the songwriters won last time for Memphis also in a largely jukebox-dominated season anyway so I guess it's not completely out of the realm of possibility.Though having seen it at La Jolla, I can see Diana making its way to Broadway eventually, but not for another year or two and with another tryout or so.
Loved Moulin Rouge and Jagged Little Pill when I saw them in Boston last Summer. Two wonderful evenings at the theater. I also enjoyed The Girl From The North Country - surprised that hasn't found a Broadway home, yet. Linda Vista was also pretty damn excellent.i'm hoping The Inheritance will find a Broadway home - I'd love to see it Doesn't sound like Magic Mike is happening anytime soon and...will Tea At Five actually make it to Broadway> heck, will it make it through its Boston run?

My guess is it’s still happening. The Inheritance I expect will transfer, my guess is it goes to the Belasco. Dying to see that show as well! Still out here praying for a Fairview transfer as well.

I believe Mr. Rudin holds the rights to SALESMAN for the planned Nathan Lane/Laurie Metcalf/Joe Mantello production a few years off.Semi-related, but remember when HANGMAN was the best thing since sliced bread and was trying to do a quick transfer before the Tonys last season? Sort of goes to show how quickly the tide can change on shows.
I wish Roundabout would pick up Hangman. I didn't see it off-Broadway since it was supposedly transferring, and then...alas..

At this point, The Inheritance and Dreamgirls seem the most likely.But I’d really love to see some other stuff from there play off broadway. Marianne Elliot’s Death of a Salesman just opened to raves and Caroline or Change is strongly rumored to be coming as well"I'm still hoping for a COMPANY transfer!
