I'm a little suspicious. I have no doubt that someone is working to bring it to Broadway, but this isn't the way shows are usually announced or a from a journalist who usually reports Broadway scoops.

Baz is a highly reputable and highly respected entertainment reporter based in London. Unless he's saying it's a rumor, it's safe to say he was given the official details to release himself. He is often the first to announce many major projects, yes generally West End related, but Broadway too.

Agreed. Baz is the UK equivalent of Michael Paulson. Yes it’s unusual for him to be the first to announce a Broadway production —but not unheard of. Wonder if it’s a Rudin production?

Thrilled that they’re continuing the filming of all of Wilson’s works.

I have to admit, I haven’t loved any of the Wilson film adaptations. In fact, I hated both of them. But I’ll be there front row when this is on Broadway.

I agree I don't think they translate that well to the screen, but if that's the only way a lot of people will get to experience them it makes me happy.

Agreed—I just wish it was another medium. Maybe a two or three part miniseries?

How poetic it would be if this latest revival were to book the currently-vacant Wilson.

Directed by LaTanya Richardson Jackson?!?! I love that idea! 

Bring it on. Can't wait. Danielle Brooks is a force of nature onstage.
