Let’s say you had the ability to see any eight productions, past or present (maybe even future) to see in one week without worrying about ticket price or anything, what shows or specific productions would they be? Or which cast members/replacements would have been in it? Maybe even a bonus 9th show on Monday, Broadway or off! Lol. Feel free to elaborate if you wish! Just a fun Sunday polling.
OBC of HamiltonOBC of In The Heights25th Anniversary Cast Of Les MiserablesOOBC of Hadestown (I've seen the OBC)OBC of Catch Me If You Can Phantom with Norm LewisHugh Jackman's Music ManLes Miserables (again, but this time with MY dreamcast!)

Great question!1) Our American Cousin, the night Lincoln was shot, and I would do my best to stop Booth. Assuming I am not killed in the process...2) The Glass Menagerie, to see Laurette Taylor3) A Streetcar Named Desire, the night (I think it only happened once) Uta Hagen and Marlon Brando played opposite each other4) South Pacific, with its original Broadway cast5) Bus Stop, for a chance to see Kim Stanley6) My Fair Lady, to see Julie Andrews as Eliza7) West Side Story, with its original cast8) Oh Dad, Poor Dad, to see that amazing cast even though I doubt I would love the play and might regret not giving this slot to the original production of She Loves Me
