What are some currently "broadway-aimed" shows that haven't announced a broadway transfer?

I have to imagine there are more new musicals coming in, but with Magic Mike losing its writing team, Don’t Stop TIL You Get Enough dropping out of its out of town tryout, and Once Upon a One More Time just seeming somehow so (to me) unlikely, are there other new musicals that we know about that feel possible? Girl from the North Country maybe. But...what else? There has to be SOME new score kicking around. How was Marie, Dancing Still received in Seattle?

I think SIX and Diana are possible as well as the Beauty and the Beast revival.

If Diana is the only new score of next season, we should cancel the Tony Awards now.

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?

How were reviews for Benny and Joon? I feel like that could have the makings of a hit.

Also, Clay Elder is one of the most beautiful people ever and should always be on Broadway.

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.

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?

One month out from performances (about) and haven’t heard anything of a cancelation or the Boston run at least for Tea At Five. 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.

Wonder how far in development Devils Wear Prada, Playing Nancy, and Nancy Drew are. I also think Ride the Cyclone and The Huey Lewis musical have a chance at transferring.

What do we think will make its way from London next season? 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 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..

I'm still hoping for a COMPANY transfer!

As mentioned in the FLAMINGO KID thread, Hartford Stage has (subtly) announced plans for a Broadway transfer. https://www.instagram.com/p/BxS25q-luq9/?utm_source=ig_share_sheet&igshid=135vae7ke9tgi

This show looks adorable and I really hope it does well. Could be a really jazzy evening with lots of fun music and flashy sets. Still a movie adaptation, but an unique score will probably make this show at least moderately successful in a season that is so preemptively dominated by jukebox-musicals. I hope this makes it all the way up to NYC for sure.
