I sent this BWW link to a friend of mine who was working on the Broadway-bound revival, and they said it's still coming in with Sierra Boggess and others...  Do we know who else is in it?

I highly doubt that it is coming in. There will be a backlog of shows fighting for theaters when Broadway reopens and I don't think Secret Garden will be at the top of the list. Plus, the producer just had investors lose their money in not one but three different productions of Bill More Chill. I can't imagine it's easy to raise money after that.

Wouldn’t your friend who was involved in the project know?

I was hoping the Sydney/Melbourne TSG might propel some buzz (I was supposed to be seeing that!), but since that got sidelined, maybe next year? Though I feel like TSG fans have been saying "maybe next year" for about 10 years.

Given the amount of shows that have either closed or seem likely to before Broadway reopens, I'm not sure where there's going to be a backlog of shows fighting for theatres.  If anything, we're going to see a lot of theatres dark for a while.  So while this probably won't happen the day Broadway reopens, it's certainly still very plausible that this revival comes in a year or two.
