I think anything is possibility for that theater, but that would be pretty great.

Yes -- it will play in rep with a revival of "Getting the Band Back Together"!

Personally hoping for Octet to come but I’d be fine with KPOP instead. Titanic, not so much.
Also, didn’t they take the production into a proscenium space in South Korea?

Isn't titanic a bit big/expensive for that space? Correct me if I'm wrong.

 

And I'd love to see Octet but I think it needs some more work before it's broadwaybound. Thankfully I don't find Dave to be one to jump the gun.

This new Titanic is a new small cast version.

I heard from someone who is involved with KPOP and at auditions last week that it’s all but confirmed for KPOP
Hunter: Your teeth need whitening./ Heidi: You sound weird./ Jeff: You taste funny.

After seeing an ambitious local production of Titanic this summer (my first introduction to the show), I can honestly say it would take an inventive revival for me to be interested. Glad I saw it, but I honestly don’t feel need to sit through it again. Glad to be proven wrong though.

I don’t see Octet coming anytime soon - Malloy has not been shy about disappointment in commercial theatre after the Great Comet fiasco.

I hope we still get Moby Dick in New York either on Broadway or Off-Broadway.

A bit off-topic, but I was amused recently to read about this performance of a Belgian production of 'Titanic' in which a special effect malfunctioned, causing the first three rows of the audience to be soaked with water. Talk about an immersive production, yuk yuk.

I recently saw the UK tour in Southampton, no less - I couldn't help but take part of this novelty. They also arranged Titanic walking tours for the run too, so you could go around the city and look at some of the historic sights related to Titanic (e.g. the White Starline offices).

Anyway, it was a nice day but I personally find the show rather emotionally unsubstantial. It almost feels like a documentary rather than something dramatic, soaring, interesting. There must be something more to tell with this story in this format...

There was so much lacking in Rose and that's why she had to prove herself through her children. [interviewer]In ways that reminded you of your mom?[/interviewer]. Let's just say the role was very interesting for me. That one was the most interesting [I've ever played]" - Bernadette Peters (2018)

Don't know if it's a possibility, but if it is the same production that was at Signature Theatre in DC, and later was revived in Korea, it was a stirring production with a very innovative and poignantly staged ending. I'm not a big fan of the musical, and I've heard of awful productions with a teeny ship going down onstage, but this was not one of them. This particular production could be wonderful at CITS.

Hmm. Interesting. That'd most likely mean the next few seasons are going to mainly comprise of adaptations, jukebox musicals and revivals, no? Huh. Where are all those original works?? I think Slave Play might be the only original work right now.

Six, Flying Over Sunset, & Diana (biographical, obviously) are coming. Slava's snowshow is revival. GRand Horizons & Linda Vista are new.

Ahh thank you!! I completely forgot that Flying Over Sunset will be a cold open at Lincoln Center.

There’s also Linda Vista, The Height of the Storm, The Inheritance, The Great Society, and The Sound Inside which I believe meet your criteria, but yeah not a long list so far for this season.

We do also have these original works (among others) to look forward to: Six, The Lehman Trilogy, Flying Over Sunset, and How I Learned To Drive (I believe this one is not considered a revival, but could be wrong).

Depends on what your standards are for originality. Some works have no source material, and yet are simply retreads of tired cliches, and feel generic beyond belief. Other shows might be based on myths (Hadestown), history (Six), or might technically be jukebox musicals (Girl From the North Country), yet they out their own original spin on it or do something new and interesting with the storytelling. And some revivals feel more fresh, innovative, and imaginative than some “original” shows.

But even by the pure standards of having no source material whatsoever, we still have: 

Height of the Storm (and the other upcoming MTC shows, I believe)

Linda Vista (and the other upcoming 2nd Stahw shows)

The Sound Inside 

Birthday Candles 

Flying Over Sunset 

plus things that are still running from earlier seasons like Dear Evan Hansen

PLUS 95% of the Off-Broadway shows that are part of the non-profit programming this season.

How I Learned to Drive will most definitely been deemed a revival for Tony Awards consideration. By the time it opens it will have been 22 years since its Pulitzer win, and the show has had a wide and extensive life amongst regional, college, and community theatres.

I will be shocked if it is NOT considered a revival, considering that at least two plays last season that were new to Broadway were nominated in the revival category, Waverly and Boys in Band.  Would be pretty difficult to justify.

I.agree with you.  I was so looking forward to seeing the original production, and was so disappointed.  I did not think it was bad, just dull...and I was never ‘invested’ in a single character.  The opening was glorious IMO and the closing was emotional, but it needed a Rose and a Jack to care about.  I still remember when the last three out took their curtain call, I almost Had a problem remembering who they were in the show, and that is not me.  I still occasionally listen to the OCR, because the score was always the best part.
