Just a fun discussion of what we're looking forward to the most. I think these threads can sometimes offer insight into shows that I or someone else may have not heard of either! So share away! 

 

For me, if budget and timing weren't an issue, the 3 productions I'm most looking forward to are The Inheritance, Flying Over Sunset, and How I Learned To Drive. All seems like unique productions with different stories to tell. I cannot wait for any of these shows. Honorable mentions are Slave Play and Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf, having never seen that one before. How about everyone else?

Soft Power. I really want to see how much it's changed since SF.

My goal is to see several off-Broadway productions. I saw Scotland, PA last Saturday and loved it. Up next: The New Englanders, The wrong man, The underlying Chris and Sing Street. On Broadway, looking forward to Tina, Soldier's Play, Six, Caroline or change and maybe some other shows if discounted tickets will be available.

I am beyond hype for the off-B'way Little Shop. That's the only ticket I have rn but shows like Company, Virginia Woolf, Sing Street, Six, JLP, Caroline or Change and How I Learned to Drive I've been eyeing too.

Edit: Also Assassins and Flying Over Sunset, there are too many productions to keep track, lol


And if we are going for shows that are not confirmed yet, totally Secret Life of Bees. They mentioned that is going to the West End first right or is that a rumor?

CSC Assassins is at the top of my list. I know John Doyle can be hot and cold of late, but the man does wonders with Sondheim.

Also excited for Unknown Soldier at Playwrights. Anything with Michael Friedman's name on it is thrilling, and I wish he were around to give us more.

I don't plan to fly cross-country to NYC again until "The Music Man" lights up Broadway.  

But this season here on the West Coast, I'm looking forward to the touring production of "My Fair Lady".

It is this season. The cut off for the Tonys is April 25th and it opens a good month before that on March 12th.

I’ll fly up to see Company in the spring for sure. I’ll add Six on because I’m curious about it, and since it’s pretty short, it’s great for a matinee.

Oh I forgot to add... I’m flying up in December for Little Shop! How could I forget that? Probably won’t add anything onto that trip since I’m taking my sister on her first trip to NYC.

Six, TINA, and Caroline or Change. There are other shows I'm interested in but, from what I know now, these are the ones I have the most faith in.

Flying Over Sunset

Jagged Little Pill

Soft Powder

Tina

American Utopia

I am not a fan of Jukebox musicals but I do want to see Tina. Kind of odd but for some reason I am not considering Jagged Little Pill to be a jukebox musical. Maybe because it is focusing on one particular recording.

Just give the world Love.
