Posted: 2/28/20 at 5:06pm

Looks like they released their yearly guessing game. The only one I'm 100% sure of is the one they already announced!

The picture on the bottom left is Aida. Eye-Eat-A= Aida

Any guesses on the other 3? Also, only 4? Will there be one more announced??

#1 ---- Waitress or Sweeney?

#2 ---- Secret Life Of Bees?

#4 ---- C to D-sharp are the opening notes of "So In Love" from Kiss Me Kate. But I'm sure those notes are in hundreds of other songs.
 

(Could also be a new show that we've never heard of before.)

#4--C D flat = seedy flat?  Rent?  Promises, Promises (musical based on The Apartment)?

It says five shows, but only four pictures. I'd assume since AIDA was already announced, they didn't include it in the guesses.

A Chorus Line revival played its final Broadway performance on August 17, 2008. The tour played its final performance on August 21, 2011. A new non-equity tour started in October 2012 played its final performance on March 23, 2013. Another non-equity tour launched on January 20, 2018. The tour ended its US run in Kansas City and then toured throughout Japan August & September 2018.

There are five clues there actually. One is Aida (baby eating the letter A), but the other four are anyone's guess.

I think it would be more accurate to say there are four clues, but one of the clues is representing two shows.

Um yeah, so a total of five. 

My guesses are Baker Street, a new musical, Aida, Baby, and A Little Night Music.

Seeing that the photo with the baby had an arrow
Pointing to the eye show that came to mind based on that was potentially cry baby?

Where I saw the article it did say that Aida wasn’t included since it already announced

I believe the music is actually two clues for two different shows.

It’s been 15 years since they did ‘The Baker’s Wife’.

I assume the honey is ‘Secret Life of Bees’ & the baby is ‘Aida’

My first thought was ‘Almost Famous’ for the last one. CD?

High Fidelity?

And Secret Life of Bees seems way too small for that space!

I feel like the baby picture is a misdirect. You are thinking it's Aida but everyone already knows that it's coming but Aida is show 5 and the picture actually holds some other clue within it for one of the other shows. Everyone is just so clearly seeing that it also means Aida that they are missing whatever the other show is. What is it... ??? I have never been good at this game year after year.

Could it be that the patterned borders around the images are the final clue?

IMHO I see Queenie as being more of a brunette...

Ah yes thanks saw the announcement, I’m just wondering how some of these tie to the clues from a few weeks back? 

I understand The Wanderer was not included in the clues because it was supposed to be part of this season. 

Does that mean another show for next season isn’t happening? Since there were reportedly 5 clues?

So from the clues...

The two musical notes always made me think of the theme to Jaws. The name they gave to the (often malfunctioning) mechanical shark in the original Jaws was Bruce... Was that the clue?!?!?! REALLY random and out there if so. But at the same time... Brilliant!

Clue - the frames maybe look like spaces on a clue board?!?

AIDA - was guessed correctly earlier in this thread. Kudos to that person for being correct! YAY!

I’m still struggling to the clues and names together. I, as usual, seemed to really overthink it.

Anyone care to explain the ridiculous clues? The dough, the honey, the music notes? Which  shows in the lineup were those supposed to hint to?
