Marin Mazzie & Jason Danieley in Bridges of Madison County. They would also have been amazing replacements on Broadway if the show actually was successful.

Bernadette Peters In Mame (as Mame), or The Visit, or Kiss of the Spider Woman*, or Dear World

* The Audra, Steven & Alan revival of Spider Woman would also be a treat.

Patti LuPone and Laura Benanti in The Rink.

Bernadette Peters to come to London and do Sunday in the Park with George with Jake (or Ashley Park who I believe was the Broadway understudy).

Cynthia Erivo in Caroline or Change

Patti LuPone in Call me Madam

Bernadette Peters & Patti LuPone in a revival or concert of War Paint

Patti LuPone in Mame (as Mame) with Bernadette as Vera...or Bernadette as Mame with LuPone as Vera. 

Donna Murphy in Gypsy

Bernadette Peters and Mandy Patinkin in Sweeney Todd

Patina Miller in Company (as 'Bobbie'Revivals that will NEVER happen but you wish it did or ITW as The Witch
 

"Rose in Gypsy was like going through therapy for me. Playing Rose helped me put a lot of emotions to bed. 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)

Those both sound like shows that would be instant sell outs!

I have a dynamite idea for Sweeney Todd which will sadly still be current as long as racial issues continue to divide America. It'd sell like hotcakes. And it probably won't happen. But I wish it would.

Over Here with Patti Lupone And Bernadette Peters

To prior poster, why waste Smith and Dench on junk. It already wasted Lansbury and Seldes. McNally must have written it in 3 hours.

Nicholas Nickelby on the scale of the 1980/81 productio

A production of Follies that comes close to the greatness - in staging and casting - as the original production.

Mame with a leading lady good enough to recall the greatness of Lansbury’s performance.

Jessica Lange in "August: Osage County."  I've been obsessed with the idea ever since someone else mentioned it in another thread.

I'd love to see an expanded or revised version of "Everyday Rapture."
